VitaMan is proud to announce it is supporting Movember this year with events and competitions. VitaMan has launched team VitaMo captained by Bath Rugby star David Flatman and be supported by several of David Bath Rugby Colleagues (including the VitaMan team). The month long celebration will culminate in the VitaMo Awards Party.
Movember is the month formerly known as November, where men and women across the globe join together to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues - specifically prostate and testicular cancer. Men sporting Movember Mo’s in effect, become walking talking billboards for the 30 days of November raising funds and much needed awareness around the often ignored issues of men’s health. In 2010, over 111,825 UK Mo Bros and Mo Sistas got on board, raising £11.7 million.
Since its humble beginnings in Melbourne Australia in 2003, Movember has grown to become a truly global movement inspiring more than 1.1 Million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to participate.
As the Official Grooming Supplier for Bath Rugby, VitaMan is organizing events at home games on 5th November and the activity culminates in a team shave off on 3rd December. By joining the VitaMo team, there is a competition for Man of Movember and several other “Mo” categories and you also stand a chance to win a place at the VitaMo Awards Party.
Everyone who purchases VitaMan shave products throughout this period or joins the VitaMo Movember team will automatically enter a free prize draw to win a signed Bath Rugby shirt and rugby ball.
On Movember 1st Mo Bros start the month clean shaven, then grow and groom their moustache all month long
