Arete Sport is excited to announce our new partnership with Movember. a 501c3 non-profit charity committed to changing the face of men’s health. Our partnership is focused on addressing the youth mental health crisis through Arete Sport programming.
“We are excited to work with such a respected charity. Movember funds over 1250+ programs with the money raised, including mental health programs such as Making Connections and Movember Conversations. We are beyond excited to support their cause and seek support from the lacrosse community. We believe the lacrosse community is in the perfect position to help create more awareness and support the Movember movement.“
Young men are facing a significant health challenge that needs more attention: mental health. Movember is the leading charity dedicated to changing the face of men’s health and is addressing the mental health crisis, a public health problem that impacts men’s health overall. Suicide is the leading cause of death globally among men aged 15-29.
Many young men throughout the country suffer in silence, in large part due to social and cultural pressures and outdated stereotypes of what it is to be a man. Movember and Arete Sport are uniquely positioned to reach and impact young men through targeted programming throughout the country.
This September – December, Arete Sport is donating (20% ) of purchase from select products to Movember, a 501c3 non-profit organization committed to changing the face of men’s health.
We are committed to a guaranteed minimum donation of $50,000.Movember Invitational
