Bros grow the mo’

Warwick Daily News - - NEWS - Sean Teuma

MOUS­TACHES usu­ally fall un­der the same fash­ion crime as wear­ing dou­ble-denim.

In Novem­ber, how­ever, this is over­looked and a few top blokes in War­wick are do­ing their bit to as­sist the bat­tle for men’s health.

If you walk into WIRAC on a given day, you will no­tice Alex Cut­more, An­thony Rixon and Harry Mar­shall sport­ing the hairy up­per lip this month.

“One of the main ideals of WIRAC and the YMCA is so­cial im­pact,” Mr Cut­more said.

“It’s why we’re more than happy to sup­port any­thing that pro­vides a pos­i­tive im­pact within the com­mu­nity.”

Mr Rixon brought up the idea of the com­mu­nity cen­tre get­ting in­volved.

“I lost some­one to prostate can­cer be­fore,” Mr Rixon said.

“It is some­thing that is close to me, and this cause is some­thing I wanted to be a part of.

“Movem­ber is a good op­por­tu­nity for ev­ery­body to get in­volved, as it cov­ers men’s health, both phys­i­cally and men­tally.

“I wanted to grow some­thing that would prompt a few con­ver­sa­tions, and so far vis­i­tors have been com­ing in and ask­ing pos­i­tive ques­tions about the cause.”

With half a month to go, the team at WIRAC is op­ti­mistic they can achieve their tar­get for the month.

“We have a goal of $500 we’d like to raise,” Mr Rixon said.

“Cur­rently we’re up to $140.”

Movem­ber has been rais­ing funds for men’s health since 2004.

If you would like to do­nate to WIRAC’s fundrais­ing ef­forts for Movem­ber, you can make a cash do­na­tion at the cen­tre, or head to the web­site: https://au.movem­ber.com/ mo­space/3644137.
