    Movember - Raising Awareness for Men's Health

    Hi All,

    I'm going to be involved in a charity event to raise awareness of and fund research into men's health issues, particularly depression and prostate cancer. All donations over $2 Australian are tax deductible in Australia.

    During Movember (the month formerly known as November) I'll be getting rid of the beard and cultivating the Mo. That's right I'm bringing the Mo back because I'm passionate about changing men's health and the fight against male depression and prostate cancer. Last time I shaved the locks, now I'm gowing the Mo. Why...
    • 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.
    To sponsor my Mo please go to Movember Australia - Sponsor a Mo Bro/Sista, click to sponsor me (Kieran Lee) and enter your credit card details. Or you can sponsor me by cheque made payable to the "Movember Foundation" clearly marking the donation as being for my Registration Number: 92426. Please mail cheques to: PO Box 292, Prahran VIC 3181. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.
    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.
    Movember culminates at the end of the month at the Gala Partés. These glamorous and groomed events will see Tom Selleck and Borat look-a-likes battle it out for their chance to take home the prestigious Man of Movember title. If you would like to be part of this great night you'll need to purchase a Gala Parté ticket .

    Thanks for your support
    Kieran
    More info is available at Movember - Grow a Mo.
    Movember is proudly grown by Commonwealth Bank, Holden, Schick and VB.
    Movember is proud partners with the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and beyondblue - the national depression initiative.

    Hey that's not fair!! You started with a mo already, I'm having to start from scratch, with no prior experience either!
    Good luck

    Started with a beard:) Never had a mo before either. In fact, its been a long time since I shaved two days in a row which is going to be the real challenge here:) I've got to do it for 30 days straight! Ah well, 5 down ...

    Kieran, put that picture away, you're scaring the crowd.
    You're putting on up with just the mo too?
    C'mon guys, my donation is already in, and it's a bloody good cause!

    Denz.

    PS, Kieran promised to go for a check up himself when he raises $2000.00

    Green for the first person to name the movie... (not exactly a hard one mind you...)
