Mo-grown is­sues raised for men’s health

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - NEWS -

THE Movem­ber Foun­da­tion, the only global char­ity fo­cused solely on men’s health, is re­turn­ing to the Sun­shine Coast big­ger, bet­ter and hairier than ever for the Movem­ber 2018 mous­tache-grow­ing fundrais­ing sea­son.

Last year, nearly 900 Mo Bros and Sis­tas across the Sun­shine Coast raised more than $200,000 to help stop men dy­ing too young and, with the foun­da­tion cel­e­brat­ing its 15th an­niver­sary in Aus­tralia this year, Movem­ber hopes to again build on this suc­cess.

Movem­ber Foun­da­tion Aus­tralia coun­try di­rec­tor Rachel Carr said she has seen men in her life go through re­ally tough times and heard first-hand the im­pact such men’s health is­sues as prostate cancer, tes­tic­u­lar cancer and sui­cide have on Aussie men.

“Be­ing part of the Movem­ber move­ment is about rais­ing the vol­ume on men’s health and I’ll be join­ing our Mo Bros and Sis­tas in shout­ing from the rooftops this Movem­ber,” Ms Carr said.
