Globally, the rate of suicide is alarmingly high, particularly in men. Too many men are trying to ‘tough it out’. Keeping their feelings to themselves and struggling in silence. Way to often this only leads to a greater sense of failure and further into depression. It is a snowball that leads down a horrific route. The Movember Foundation is aiming to reduce the rate of male suicide by 25% by 2030, and I am pushing to help get them there.
In addition to basic awareness and my mighty mo, I am also pledging to complete 50 push-ups daily throughout the month. With additional push-up for those donations exceeding $50.
Last year I raised over $650 and completed a whopping 3400 pushup in just over two months. This year I have set the bar higher with a minimum of 1500 push ups and a donation goal of $1500 – all during November. Please support the Movember team by supporting a Mo growing Bro, and lets change the face of men’s health together.
In additional to mental health, the Movember Foundation also supports research and assistants to prostate and testicular cancers, as well as other men’s health programs. Read more at: Movember Foundation
