Just wanted to do a quick post regarding something special I’ve been doing this month with my walking group, Walk and Talk 4 Men. Headed by James Mace, our founder, I have been part of a fundraising team for Movember.
For those of you unaware, they are an organisation which primarily does fundraising events every November – mainly by encouraging men to grow a moustache for the whole of the month, but also through other activities – to help bring awareness to men’s health, in particular mental well-being but also testicular and prostate cancer.
I have been raising money by uploading daily impressions on my Instagram account which I have called my #MarvellousMovemberImpressions. I am 17 days in and have so far done everyone, from Jennifer Aniston to Michael McIntyre.
I set myself an initial fundraising target of £100 which I hit this weekend just gone, and as a team we’ve now raised over £5000, which is incredible considering that it’s quite a difficult time for many at the moment.
I would really love to hit my next target of £200. If you’re able to, anything you can give will help Movember continue their amazing work to stop more men becoming part of the sad statistics that surround men’s health, saving and improving men’s lives through projects focused on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.
If you want to donate or sponsor me you can do so by heading to my fundraising page on the Movember website. Thank you so much – and don’t forget to keep checking my Instagram for all the new impressions still to come this Movember!
