Not sure if you have heard about the “Mo-vember” initiative. I briefly mentioned it at the last MOSSIG meeting. It was undertaken by Dave Lemphers, Microsoft, last year. This year MOSSIG are entering a team called “MOSSIG” and some of our members are keen to “grow-a-mo” – to raise funds for MENS HEALTH.
Male health is a major issue, did you know:
· Men are far less healthy than women. The average life expectancy of males is 6 years less than females.
· Every year in Australia 2,700 men die of prostate cancer – more than the number of women who die from breast cancer.
· Depression affects 1 in 6 men…Most don’t seek help. Untreated depression is a leading risk factor for suicide. Rates of suicide are more than double the national road toll.
Help us change the face of men’s health by sponsoring our mo’s or join us in growing-a-mo.
