October is drawing to a close, and now that your jack-o’-lanterns are carved and your Halloween costumes chosen, it’s time to think about moving on to Movember. No, that’s not a typo. Movember is an annual international campaign to raise awareness (as well as funds for research) on men’s health, particularly in the areas of prostate and testicular cancer and mental health and suicide prevention.

In this TED talk from 2011, Movember founder Adam Garone (from Adelaide, Australia) outlines the origins of the movement and the impact it has today. It’s an inspiring story of how a simple idea, with enough perseverance, can grow into an international phenomenon.
