We've created a programme of events for Movember which are all aiming at one thing - to raise £1000 for our Movember fund. Check out what's happening below - we'd love to see you at a few events.
These events are not just for men. We would love to see people of other genders involved, and we even have some stick on moustaches if you're not capable of growing your own!
Grow a Mo - Friday 1 November - Saturday 30 November
There's one great way to support Movember - grow a mo! Don't worry if you can't - we have plenty of stick on moustaches in our office (K11) or you can get creative and draw your own. Whatever you do, make sure you're supporting those who are mo-ing through the month - the increased awareness will only help to publicise movember which could then save lives!
Move for Movember - 11 - 15 November, 12pm - 5pm, Student Square (between the J and K Blocks)
Our sports clubs and societies are hosting a wide range of sporting contests and competitions to raise money for Movember. Come along to meet new people, learn about our clubs and societies AND to give you the chance to win some amazing prizes from some local businesses. We'll reveal what they are on our Instagram stories - follow us on @stmaryssu!
£1 entry (proceeds go to the Movember fund)
Movember Mental Health Walk - 15 November - The Athletics Track
1,440 men die every day from suicide globally. Collectively, we're aiming to walk 1,440 laps of the track together - all students and staff are welcome to join and every lap will count towards our target. It costs £1 to take part in this walk (which goes to the Movember fund) so come to the Athletics track and do your bit to raise awareness and money for suicide prevention.
