Happy Movember! From Movember co-founder Adam Garone’s TEDxToronto talk, "Healthier men, one moustache at a time."
In his talk, Garone explains how Movember — an initiative to raise awareness for men’s health by having men grow moustaches every November — began as a dare in a bar in 2003. Now, it’s a worldwide movement that raises millions of dollars for prostate cancer research each year.
For more information about how to join in Movember yourself, check out their website here, and for some fun, take a look at the highlights of the TED staff’s Movember adventure last year.
