Movember 2021 at React Homecare

This year, React Homecare took part in Movember.

Movember is the leading charity who are “changing the face of men’s health”. They raise awareness about mental health, suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer and in doing so, are also creating a supportive environment for men all over the world to feel that they can speak up in. Since starting the movement in 2003, Movember has funded over 1,250 men’s health projects globally and they’re not stopping there. By 2030, their aim is to reduce 25% of men dying prematurely.

So, to support this movement and all the men we have in the offices, as Service Users, as family and as friends, we at React Homecare decided to take part!

We had individuals who:

  • Grew a moustache
  • Walked/ran/cycled 60km over the month – this is for the 60 men that are lost to suicide every hour around the world
  • Had a Mo-ment
  • Mo-ed their own way – some individuals set their own challenges such as 100 squats a day/a week to push themselves.


If we can help contribute to raising awareness and funding more men’s health projects that result in saving people’s lives, we’re all for it.
