During Movember (the month formerly known as November) Iâ€™ll be growin a moustache. Thatâ€™s right Iâ€™m bringing the Mo back because Iâ€™m passionate about changing the state of menâ€™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 â€“ more than the number of women who die from breast cancer.
- Depression affects 1 in 6 menâ€¦Most donâ€™t seek help. Untreated depression is a leading risk factor for suicide. Rates of suicide are more than double the national road toll.
Help me change the face of menâ€™s health by sponsoring my mo.
Please go to http://www.movember.com/au/sponsor, enter my Rego number which is 36828 and your credit card details. All donations of $2 and over are tax deductible.
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 PartÃ¨ where Iâ€™ll be parading my 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 youâ€™ll have to purchase a Gala Parte ticket for $33.00 (inc GST).
