Movember Lowdown


This month Queenstown-based Mike Christian will be participating and blogging on his experiences. His girlfriend Mountain Scene photographer Jess Parker will also be giving the woman’s perspective.

 Movember (the month formerly known as November) is an annual charity event held during November.

At the start of Movember guys register with a clean shaven face. The Movember participants, known as Mo Bros, have the remainder of the month to grow and groom their Mo, raising money along the way to benefit men’s health – specifically prostate cancer and men’s depression.
