Movember – Changing the face of men’s health.
The Movember Foundation is a not-for-profit charitable organisation which runs the men’s health initiative, Movember – the month formerly known as November – a moustache growing charity event held during November each year that raises funds and awareness for men’s health.
Seashells team Paul King (Managing Director), Gareth Thomas (Director of Operations) and Nathan Parker (Front Office Manager, Seashells Yallingup & Caves House) proudly participated in Movember this year, raising $2,400 in donations for the Movember Foundation, and extend a huge thank you to all those who generously supported us.
The Movember event is designed to raise funds, awareness and support for men’s health issues and Movember’s partners: The Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and beyondblue – the national depression initiative. Many people aren’t aware that close to 3,000 men die of prostate cancer each year in Australia and one in eight men will experience depression in their lifetime – many of whom don’t seek help. Movember is now in its sixth year and, to date, has raised AUD$62 million globally for the fight against prostate cancer and depression in men, achieving some pretty amazing results.
