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?
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!"
