Group DescriptionDuring Movember (the month formerly known as November) idiots like myself will be growin a moustache. That’s right we're bringing the Mo back because we're passionate about changing the state of men’s health.
Male health is a major issue, did you know:
Men are far less healthy than women. The average life expectancy of males is 6 years less than females.
Every year in Australia 2,700 men die of prostate cancer – more than the number of women who die from breast cancer.
Depression affects 1 in 6 men…Most don’t seek help. Untreated depression is a leading risk factor for suicide. Rates of suicide are more than double the national road toll.
Help us change the face of men’s health either by registering, growing your own and looking for sponsorship from family, friends, work colleagues, fellow students, flickrites ... whoever. Or, by sponsoring my, or anybody else's mo that you know.
Please go to www.movember.com.au/ and follow the obvious links to sign-up/register, or go to www.movember.com.au/au/sponsor, enter my Rego number which is 2499 and your credit card details to sponsor me!
The money raised by Movember will be used to change the face of men's health by creating awareness and funding research into prostate cancer and male depression.
Movember culminates at the end of the month at the Gala Partè where you'll have a chance to parade your Mo on the cat walk for a chance to be crowned the Man of Movember. If you want to be part of this great night you’ll have to purchase a Gala Parte ticket for $33.00 (inc GST). if you raise more than $250, your ticket will be free.
come on, jump on board.
