Mos for bros
In Australia men die on average four years earlier than women, and for largely preventable reasons. Working in a predominantly male industry, the Ezyquip Hire Team felt it was their responsibility to do their part in raising awareness and much needed funds for a worthy cause.
Each November, men are asked to grow their moustaches for Movember, a global men’s health charity. Our team were more than keen to take up the challenge – raising over $3,000 in just 30 days.
Robert Jones, our Disposals and Procurement Coordinator said of the challenge “Any cause that could ultimately save a life, and maybe even the life of one of my mates is a cause worth getting behind.”
For those who don’t know, Movember aims to raise awareness and fund research for men’s health issues such as mental health and suicide prevention, and prostate and testicular cancer. Movember Australia works closely with organisations such as Beyond Blue and the Prostate Cancer Foundation, transforming the way health services reach and support men.
Although Movember is over for another year we would like to thank our team for all of their efforts, not only growing those patchy, itchy, and sometimes lopsided mos, but for raising an impressive amount of money for an amazing charity.
