he guys over at Oceanica are participating in Movember this year, an event which is best described using their own words:
Men lack awareness about the very real health issues they face. There is an attitude that they have to be tough – “a real man” – and are reluctant to see a doctor about an illness or go for regular medical checks.
Movember aims to change these attitudes and make men’s health fun by putting the Mo back on the face of fashion and in the process raise some serious funds for key men’s health issues, including:
Prostate Cancer: because every year 2,900 Australian men die from prostate cancer and over 18,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer.
Depression in Men: because one in six men experience depression at any given time but most don’t seek help.
We’ve just made a donation to their team “Moceanica”, and encourage others to do the same by hitting this link. I’m hoping that they update their web site with the “after” photos of the guys…
Maybe next year we might take them up in a mo-off…
