A month-long campaign to raise awareness of men's health is underway with Movember.

Participants in the campaign grow their facial hair and organize events to support the effort.

The Movember Foundation directs the funds raised to programs related to prostate and testicular cancer, as well as mental health and suicide prevention.

In Regina on Wednesday, a Movember flag was raised at the legislature.

A number of politicians and local participants in the campaign were on hand for that.
