EuroMOdalla Choppers face up to men’s health

EuroMOdalla Choppers face up to men’s health

Eurobodalla Shire Council staff have again grabbed men’s health awareness by the handlebars, signing up to grow ‘mos’ during Movember.

The Movember movement aims to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health by raising funds and awareness, with a focus on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and physical inactivity.

Last year Council’s EuroMOdalla Choppers team, comprising Mo-bro Director of Finance and Business Development Anthony O’Reilly, Mo-bro Public Environmental Health and Compliance Coordinator Nathan Ladmore and Mo-sister Sustainability Education Officer Gillian Kearney, raised about $1500 for the cause.

This year they have upped the ante, joining forces with Senior Batemans Bay Water and Sewer Operator Mark Blewitt and adopting the ambitious fundraising target of $2000 for Australian men’s health initiatives.

Team captain Mo-sister Gillian Kearney, who has less ‘tache but plenty of panache, has been spreading the word about men’s health in honour of her late father, who had prostate cancer.

“Awareness starts conversations and conversations lead to taking notice of signs and behaviours that things are not okay and hopefully this leads to taking action,” she said.

“It’s not too late to donate to the cause by visiting the Movember website

“All funds raised go towards men’s health projects including mental health, health and wellbeing initiatives and better diagnosis, help and support for carers and patients with men’s cancers.

“Every bit helps to change the face of men’s health and stop men dying too young.” Media Release
