The St Edward’s Movember Team have currently raised $2,470 and have walked, ran or exercised 271 kilometres!! This is an incredible achievement and these gentlemen should be congratulated!
Funds raised for Movember go towards setting up programs such as ‘Keeping Men Connected’ and a ‘Social Innovators Challenge’ with the goal of establishing activities such as boxing, surfing or cooking, to be used to engage and enable friendships to support mental health and wellbeing. These programs have shown that they have significantly increased happiness, wellbeing and social connectedness of the men who take part.
What boys learn as teenagers will help to shape the men they become. Teaching them about mental health, how to look after their own, and how to support their friends is critical to their later-in-life health and happiness. For young guys, it can be tricky to know what is and isn’t normal when it comes to physical and mental health.
That’s were Movember’s mental health projects come in. If you’d like to show your support you can donate to the Team by clicking on the following link Click Here
