Movember Recruitment Drive

The fact that you are here reading this blog means that you will be aware of the struggle that I have faced over the past year with Major Clinical Depression, most recently having to take respite away from friends and family at Lakeside.
The impact on both myself and my family has been immense. It has been the strength of friends family and organisations such as ARAFMI and beyondblue, that has gotten me and my family through the darkest of days.

This year I am attempting to raise as much awareness as I can through the Movember movement. It’s one small way that I can show the thanks that so many people deserve.

I’m officially supporting the growing club of modern gentlemen who believe in the virtues of fine moustachery, immaculate grooming and growing a moustache for Movember. I am looking for like-minded ladies and gentlemen to join my team to change the face of men’s health.

Movember is about raising funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and depression in men. Close to 3,300 men die of prostate cancer in Australia each year and one in eight men will experience depression in their lifetime. Many of these men do not seek help.

I think it’s time we did something about this.

The more people I can get onboard, the more lives we can impact. I am asking you to join my team and either grow a moustache as a Mo Bro, or sign on as a Mo Sista to help recruit other gentlemen.

To join my Movember team go to http://au.movember.com/register/84996 and follow the steps. Once registered you’ll be sent all the information you need to raise funds and start growing as part of my Movember team.

If you’re interested in learning more about the work that is being carried out as a result of Movember funds, feel free to read the details at http://au.movemberfoundation.com/research-and-programs.

I hope you join me to change the face of men’s health.
