Adam Garone Founder and CEO, Movember

  • 2011

To date, over a million moustaches have been grown for Movember, raising more than $178 million to change the face of men’s health. In 2004, Adam and the other Founders established Movember as a not for profit entity and chose prostate cancer as the cause, so that men were given an opportunity to support a serious disease that affected them. Fast-forward to 2011 and the moustache has emerged as the global symbol for men’s health, with official campaigns in ten countries.
