ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Scuf Gaming, innovator and creator of high-performance gaming controllers, today announced its collaboration with the global charity Movember for #SCUFMO, now in its second year in a row. Together with an esteemed list of professional gamers and content creators, Scuf Gaming and Movember will present a series of livestreams aimed at raising awareness about the importance of men’s physical and mental health. In addition, Scuf Gaming will donate a portion of its controller sales to the charity throughout the month of November.
“With #SCUFMO, our aim is to help the Movember movement and raise awareness for the importance of mental health, not just among esports athletes, but among all the gamers in the world,” said Duncan Ironmonger, CEO and Founder of Scuf Gaming. “We are always eager to give back to the community to which we owe everything, and we believe Movember offers us a magnificent opportunity to do so.”
#SCUFMO will feature world-renowned celebrities and gaming superstars, such as Censor, Syndicate, Iain Stirling, and Nepenthez, who will join the livestreams and play their favorite games to raise money for the Movember Foundation. Viewers will have the chance to make a contribution to support Movember during livestreams which will air on the creators’ official channels.

The personality of their brand complements ours.”

Movember (a portmanteau of the words “mo”, a diminutive of “moustache”, and “November”) is an annual charity event that involves the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s health issues such as prostate or testicular cancer and mental health.
The charity event is led by the Movember Foundation, created in Australia in 2004. The movement aims to increase early cancer detection, diagnosis and effective treatments, and ultimately reduce the number of preventable deaths. Besides annual check-ups, the Movember Foundation encourages men to be aware of family history of cancer and to adopt a healthier lifestyle. In 2012, the Global Journal listed Movember as one of the world's top 100 NGOs (non-government organization).
