  • MOVEMBER 2007 - The Republic of Movember

    Last year PSB raised $2885 and this year (as Daise isn't with us in Australia) I've registered PSB as a team for Movember 2007.

    So who's in for 2007?





    Movember - Changing the face of Men's Health

    Movember the month formally known as November is a charity event held during November each year.

    At the start of Movember guys register with a clean shaven face. The Movember participants known as Mo Bros then have the remainder of the month to grow and groom their moustache and along the way raise as much money and awareness about male health issues as possible.

    Movember culminates at the end of the month at the Gala Partés. These glamorous and groomed events will see Tom Selleck and David Boon look-a-likes battle it out on the catwalk for their chance to take home the prestigious Man of Movember title.

    While growing a Mo is left to the guys, Mo Sistas (ladies that support their guys or just love Mo's!) form an important part of Movember with their powerful feminine touch, by recruiting Mo Bros, helping to raise funds and attending the highly anticipated Gala Partés.

    But it' s not all fun and games, so why the extreme behaviour?

    Which ever way we look at it, men are far less healthy than women. The average life expectancy for men is five years less than for women.
    The obvious question is why?

    The answer is because men lack awareness about the very real health issues they face, have a "she'll be right" attitude and are reluctant to see a doctor about an illness or to go for regular medical checks.

    The aim of Movember is to change these attitudes, make male health fun by putting the Mo back on the face of fashion and in the process raise some serious funds for key male health issues, including:

    Prostate Cancer: because every year in Australia 2,900 men die of prostate cancer - equivalent to the number of women who die from breast cancer annually.

    Male Depression: because one in six men experience depression at any given time but most don't seek help.

        One of the conditions of my marriage is that I never get rid of the mo/goatee.

        Yes, I am both lame and pussywhipped.

                  I believe Rhino got the most money (not 100%).

                        I'd enter but do to my uncanny inability to grow facial hair, I'd only hold you back.

                        Good luck guys.

                            we had a non-hairy PSB dood do it last year, lack of facial fuzz doesn't mean you can't raise money :p
