WHAT IS MOVEMBER ANYWAYS?

The Movember Foundation is the leading charity supporting men's health. Their three main focuses year-round are to support: men's mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer research, and testicular cancer research. Through global donations, they have funded over 1,250 men's health projects to transform the way health services reach and support men. This incredible movement brings together communities from around the world to raise donations in creative ways, to better support our brothers, fathers, and grandfathers.

HOW DO WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

EVENTS
Every November, JMoSB encourages donations by putting on events and activities. Firstly, our events encourage students to be active with yoga classes, spin classes, or workout challenges. Secondly, we host talks, share information, and provide therapeutic events to help open the conversation surrounding men's health. Last but not least, we throw a stache bash every year to celebrate our success and our efforts as a community.
SPONSORS

As a not-for-profit organization, our sponsors are the backbone of our success throughout the month. They help us motivate our students into participating by providing prizes and they support our cause directly through donations. Some of our sponsors are also the co-hosts of some of our most successful events. We work together with our sponsors to raise as much money as possible, and to expose our students to the very best deals and rewards for all of their hard work. 

STUDENT PARTICIPATION

For the entire month, the student associations of JMSB go head-to-head in a challenge to raise the most donations for our school. Through their own campaigns, and sharing their mustachio'd pictures online, (# students approx) from 16 JMSB student associations collect donations in the hopes of their association becoming the victor. Because of this, the JMoSB movember campaign is one of our most widely known successful campaigns of the school year. 

How do we collect donations? Where do they go?

JMoSB fundraises directly through the Movember Canada Foundation, which invests in men’s health projects across mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer. JMoSB has a Mo'Space page set up whereby all sponsors and donors can access our page, and make donations directly to the foundation. All proceeds from JMoSB events are donated directly to the Mo'Space page.

Matthew Dubé - Movember Foundation Senior Manager

"The JMoSB team exemplifies the Movember values of Humble and Remarkable Experience. Not only did you raise an incredible amount of money that will help men live happier, healthier, and longer lives but you demonstrated outstanding leadership by bringing together your peers, sponsors, and others together. Thanks for everything you do for men’s health and Movember and continue to do to make a difference in your community!"

Laura Ciamarra & Julian Sintim - JMoSB Presidents 2021-2022

"Having the opportunity to lead the 2021 JMoSB team was an honor and a privilege. “Men die on average 5 years earlier than women”; this statistic is something the JMoSB team continues to try and change. We received an outpouring amount of support from Concordia students and the community, and we are extremely thankful and pleased to have achieved a record-breaking fundraising amount this past November. We are so proud of our team and knowing that all of our hard work and efforts go toward such an amazing cause made every dollar raised and every minute spent on the events and initiatives – worth it!"
