CJ’ers Support Movember & Men’s Health Awareness for the 2nd Year

Nov 7, 2023
Written by Andrew Heavens

Happy Movember! Last year, associates in CJ's Needham, MA office grew facial hair for Movember and raised an impressive $2K to support men's health. This year, they're doing it again—and they could use your help!

Founded in 2003, Movember is an annual event that invites men to grow mustaches in November to bring awareness to men’s health issues: mental health, prostate cancer, and testicular cancer.

In 2022, 13 associates from CJ's Needham office participated in growing mustaches or beards and raised an impressive $2,000 in the process. This year, the CJ Needham office is proudly supporting Movember once again! As part of our commitment to men's mental health, prostate, and testicular cancer awareness, we welcome your donations on our Movember team page. Your contributions will help us make a positive impact and further these critical causes!

Read on to learn more about the causes Movember supports and why they’re so important.


Men’s Mental Health Awareness

Movember helps to combat this by encouraging open conversations about mental health and offering support for men seeking assistance without judgment. Consider these statistics that highlight the urgency of the matter:

Prostate and Testicular Cancer Awareness

Movember also serves as a dynamic platform to emphasize the vital importance of prostate and testicular cancer awareness. Prostate cancer, a prevalent concern for men, can greatly benefit from early detection, significantly improving outcomes. Testicular cancer, while less common, can affect young men. Consider these statistics that underline the significance of awareness and early detection:

Need Support or Resources?

Fifty percent of people with cancer are afraid to tell their employers due to perceived stigma.

CJ is proud that Publicis Groupe and the Publicis Foundation recently launched the Working with Cancer coalition alongside leading cancer charities and organizations to erase the stigma of cancer in the workplace. Companies who have taken the Working with Cancer Pledge now reassure those employees with job security, career support, an internal community, and flexibility to help assist both physical and mental recovery. The pledge invites every business across the globe—big and small—to join the movement at
