November, or more importantly ‘Movember’ is here, providing the perfect excuse to grow a mo, or support a ‘mo bros’ (men with a moustache), and start thinking about men’s health.
To date, more than four million moustaches have been grown worldwide in an effort to spark conversation and raise vital founds for men’s health programs. And to show support, throughout the month of Movember the Macquarie University Hospital (MUH) will match staff and doctor donations dollar for dollar, up to an overall contribution from the hospital of $1500.
This year this hospital will support Movember in two ways and all staff are welcome to get involved.
1. The 24 hour treadmill relay
From 4pm on Tuesday 24 November, staff can take part in a 24 hour treadmill relay in the hospital foyer.
To take part
- Email your interest using the subject line ‘MOVEMBER’ to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your name and contact details. The organising team will be in touch.
- Once you’ve received confirmation, register on the MUH Movember site so people can sponsor you.
2. Grow a mo
Like always, mo bros can encourage their friends, families and colleagues to sponsor them in their efforts to grow moustaches throughout the month of November. All you need to do is register on the Movember site then follow the five rules of Movember below.
The close shave close: Barber Shop BBQ
At 12.30pm on Friday 27 November, MUH will host a barbecue outside Harley’s Café where mo bros will shave off their month’s worth of work. All staff are welcome to attend . $5 donation.
