Growing a moustache was what kickstarted Movember back in 2003.

It's the annual event in which men are encouraged to grow out their upper lip hair to raise funds and awareness for men's health.

Men across the country will be growing moustaches all month, all the while drawing attention to prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.

The Movember Foundation this year celebrates its 15th anniversary by returning bigger, better and...hairier than ever, as the only global charity focused exclusively on men's health.

"The Movember Foundation is dedicated to working towards a world where men take action to be mentally healthy and well, and are supported by their friends, family and community during tough times".

"There's truly no brand that has a man that represents them as much as us", explained Green Giant PR Manager Kristin Bradley.

"Being part of the Movember movement is about raising the volume on men's health and I'll be joining our Mo Bros and Sistas in shouting from the rooftops this Movember". After getting a hot shave at Kelowna's The Tailored Shave, reporters Nich Johansen and Wayne Moore, news director Rob Gibson and Okanagan Oldies host Kevin Rothwell are starting their moustaches from scratch for the month. The Movember Foundation says to date, through the moustaches grown, connections created, and conversations generated, it has helped fund almost 300 men's health projects in Canada.
