For the month of November, every male member of staff at CYBEX UK will be taking part in Movember, raising money for Movember & Sons.
An international charity, Movember raises money in the UK for programmes run to raise awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer, and their men’s health partners, Prostate Cancer UK and the Institute of Cancer Research.
Movember continues to work to change established habits and attitudes of men about their health, to educate men about the health risks they face, and to act on that knowledge, thereby increasing the chances of early detection, diagnosis and effective treatment.
Now a worldwide phenomenon, Movember has raised over £184 million since its inception in 2004, raising £79.3 million in 2011 alone.
This year CYBEX UK is contributing to the Movember cause. In exchange for all CYBEX UK male members of staff amusing clients, friends and family alike with the most imaginative of top lip creations, the team is welcoming donations (of all sizes!) to raise money for this great cause.

Alan Ellis, CYBEX UK key account manager, said of CYBEX’s decision to participate in Movember 2012: “Many of our industry colleagues including Nuffield Health and Metro Fitness have also pledged their commitment to the charity this year so we expect some healthy competition! Aside from the entertainment and amusement we hope to create, Movember is a fantastic charity, raising money for a very worthwhile cause and everyone at CYBEX is delighted to be contributing.”

This follows a busy month of fundraising across CYBEX International throughout October, with facilities worldwide participating in the fourth annual CYBEX Pink Ribbon Run, using CYBEX Pink Treadmills to raise money for breast cancer awareness charities.
