Some worthy mo-tivation

Don’t look now – Movember is fast approaching!

Bob before

Bob Evans before his annual growth.

While you may think Movember is all about giving people an excuse to grow a dirty ‘stache or giving permission to not shave for a month, Movember is actually an organization that raises awareness and significant funding for cancer research. They raised more than $61 million globally in 2015 alone. And you may not know this, but we actually have people here at Splunk fighting Prostate Cancer. In fact, our very own Bob Evans has been battling aggressive Prostate Cancer since 2009. You can learn more about his journey here.

A little about Movember

The Movember Foundation is the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale. They address some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention. They know what works for men, and how to find and fund the most innovative research to have both a global and local impact. Over 13 years they’ve funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the world, with a goal of reducing the number of men dying prematurely by 25% by 2030.

 

How can you help?

We would love for all of our supporting sisters and brothers to join the Splunk Movember team, wherever you are in the world (and you don’t have to work for Splunk to join). Join the Splunk Movember Team or start your own…. or even support one of our very own in his own battle. We always appreciate any contributions to the cause.

 

Mo on Mo Sisters and Brothers!

 

This better be a worthy effort!

This better be for a worthy cause!
