The Movember initiative against cancer

Movement is one of the greatest sources of joy and well-being. Cancer on the other hand one of the most deadly diseases, which in one way or the other, can affect us all. During the month of November we therefore wanted to contribute to the fight against cancer, by promoting movement by everyone and charity from everyone.
