Well, Movember is almost done, but it’s not too late for you to show your support!
I’ve gone the hard yards this year and grown the full handlebar mo, so it’s time to dig deep and show your support for depressed prostates everywhere (see below for an explanation of what Movember is all about).
No donation is too small and everything over $2 is tax-deductable.
Check out my Molog at http://www.movember.com/au
- Depression affects 1 in 6 men…Most don’t seek help. Untreated depression is a leading risk factor for suicide.
- Last year in Australia 18,700 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer and more than 2,900 died of prostate cancer – equivalent to the number of women who die from breast cancer annually.
- Men are far less healthy than women. The average life expectancy of males is 5 years less than females.

The money raised by Movember is donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and beyondblue – the national depression initiative , which will use the funds to create awareness, fund research and increase support networks for those men who suffer from prostate cancer and male depression.
For those that have supported Movember in previous years you can be very proud of the impact it has had and can check out the detail at: Fundraising Outcomes.
