This week saw the launch of Movember for 2008 which was held on Wednesday 15th Oct at the Forum theatre in Melbourne and across several other locations around the nation
Held during November each year, Australian men and women register nationally for Movember. With a clean-shaven face from November 1st, participating Mo Bros spend the month growing and grooming their mo’. Along the way, Mo Bros and their mo’ supporters, including Mo Sista’s, raise as much money and awareness for male health:
• Prostate cancer – every year in Australia 2,900 men die of prostate cancer – more than the number of women who die from breast cancer
• Male depression – One in six men are affected by depression. Most don’t seek help. Depression can have serious effects on physical and mental health
In 2007, over 96,000 enthusiastic Mo Bros & Sista’s raised over $15 million for Movember, supporting the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and Beyondblue
So get united and register!
