Cardinia Leisure staff and members will be taking part in Movember this month raising awareness around men’s health including prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health.
The stats have shown that men are dying on average 6 years earlier than women, testicular cancer rates have already doubled in the last 50 years and it is predicted that prostate cancer rates will double over the next 15 years according to Movember.com.
All of these are largely preventable and even though the numbers above are scary it proves that you need to take it upon yourself to either book yourself in for a check-up with your GP or if you have noticed something ask a friend if they are OK?
Not keen on growing a mo but would still like to support the cause? That is fine!
Cardinia Life is offering its members the opportunity to bring men for free to any mind body class, Yoga, Body balance & Pilates or you can move this Movember by running or walking 60 kilometres over the month. That’s 60 kilometres for the 60 men we lose to suicide each hour, every hour across the world
Call on friends and family to back you with a donation, and then chip away, your way. You can stop men dying too young.
