Joe's Mo!

Movember (the month formerly 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.

The aim of Movember is to change mens attitudes and to 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.

This year my brother Joe is growing a "Mo" and getting sponsorship along the way. Although I knew he was doing it I was unable to stop staring at the thick black handlebar Mo on his face when he turned up at Gareths Birthday Party. We certainly had a laugh and took lots of photos. This one has to be my favourite!

For anyone who knows Joe and wants to sponsor his Mo here is the link....

You will need to enter his registration number which is 66377 and your credit card details.
