Movember campaign at Galeria Bronowice
Date of event: 10.11.2017
For the second time Galeria Bronowice is going to host the Kraków edition of global Movember campaign, which is meant to raise awareness of testicular cancer in men. For the whole day, on Friday 10th Novemeber, all men will have an opportunity to get examined for free and meet health educators. The check-ups are aimed at most at risk populations - men aged 18 to 35.
Last year’s Movember cancer prevention campaign in Kraków broke attendance record - more than 150 men were examined during the event at Galeria Bronowice. This year the campaign will return to the Kraków shopping mall; as part of the event men who are most at risk of developing testicular cancer, that is those between 18 and 35 years of age, will have an opportunity to get an ultrasound scan. Apart from free preventive health examinations, all those who are not afraid to wait can also meet health educators specialising in the area of men’s health. What is more, for the duration of the campaign, you can take advantage of the services of a professional barber, who will take special care of your moustache - which is the symbol of Movember campaign. In November men all over world grow their moustache to show their support for the campaign and to encourage public discussion on the topic of men’s cancers - specifically prostate and testicular cancer. For many men these problems still remain a taboo.
Galeria Bronowice is the only place in Kraków, where - as part of Movember campaign - men can have free preventive health examinations and check-ups. The campaign is going to take place from 9.30 am - 2.00 pm and 3.00 pm - 8.00 pm in the zone below the ring, on the ground floor of the mall.
