For the second year running, the Squashtache campaign is asking the squash community to grow facial hair in support of the PSA Foundation and men’s health charity Movember.
A number of professional players and players of all levels across the squash community are growing their squashtaches to support these two amazing causes:
The PSA Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Professional Squash Association (PSA) and PSA World Tour. Its purpose is to positively impact communities where professional squash has an influence.
The Foundation does this by uniting the squash community, leaving a lasting legacy where professional squash is played, supporting community programmes and facilitating collaboration within the sport.
Movember is a charity which supports men’s health on a number of different levels:
Men are dying on average five years earlier than women, and for largely preventable reasons.
A growing number of men – around 10.8M globally – are facing life with a prostate cancer diagnosis. Globally, testicular cancer is the most common cancer among young men. And across the world, one man dies by suicide every minute of every day, with males accounting for 69% of all suicides.
Movember is uniquely placed to address this crisis on a global scale. They fund groundbreaking projects all over the world, engaging men where they are to understand what works best and accelerate change.
