With just under one week to go in this year’s Movember campaign – there is still time to give to the Mo Bros and Mo Sistas who are collecting donations to help make difference for men's health.
Funds raised go to supporting work to better treat prostate cancer, testicular cancer and to help in dealing with mental health and suicide prevention.
Across the rugby league family; there are a number of players and participants who have taken on the challenge of raising money for this great cause.
In the Queensland Rugby League office at Rugby League Central Queensland; South East Queensland Division (Region) Wellbeing and Education Manager Luke Archer has been sporting a healthy mo; but was also thankful for the platform the fundraising event provided for men in particular to talk about their health issues.
“I know we all have mates that don’t talk about this stuff, so I really appreciate (the fundraiser) helping me talk about it," Archer said.
“Thanks (to everyone) for your support this Movember as we work together to stop men dying too young.
“Your donation makes you an official part of the Movember movement ... and is helping fund ground-breaking projects in prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.”
