As autumn leaves fall and November unfolds, a change takes place on the faces of men around the world. Movember, a global movement that originated in Australia, encourages men to grow moustaches and beards throughout the month to raise awareness about men's health issues, particularly prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health challenges. RE:TREAT at The Lowry Hotel has taken this cause to heart, participating in initiatives that aim to make a lasting impact.
This Movember, RE:TREAT is partnering with AssureHealth to offer free testicular scans. Testicular cancer is one of the most common cancers among young men, but early detection can significantly increase the chances of successful treatment. RE:TREAT is providing an opportunity for men to prioritise their health by undergoing a simple, non-invasive test that could potentially save lives. By hosting free testicular scans, RE:TREAT and AssureHealth aim to break down barriers surrounding men's health, encouraging open conversations and proactive steps toward well-being.
But the Movember activities don't stop there. To wrap up the month on a high note, RE:TREAT is hosting a free Shave-a-Thon in collaboration with in-house hairdresses WithDilan. Participants are invited to bid farewell to their moustaches and beards, all in the name of supporting men's health. The Shave-a-Thon promises not only a fresh start but also the opportunity to contribute to a charitable cause.
In the spirit of giving, RE:TREAT encourages participants in the Shave-a-Thon to make a donation to the Movember charity. The funds raised will go toward supporting research, education, and programs that address men's health issues globally. Every donation contributed brings us one step closer to a world where men live healthier, happier lives.
The Movember movement extends beyond the physical act of growing facial hair; it's about starting conversations, raising awareness, and taking proactive steps toward a healthier future for men everywhere.
So, whether you're sporting a mighty moustache or a beard this Movember, consider joining RE:TREAT in their efforts to shave off stigma, prioritise health, and contribute to a cause that impacts countless lives. Together, let's make this Movember a month to remember – for change, for awareness, and for the well-being of men around the world.
