Mo Crawler

The annual Movember Pub Crawl was in full swing, in Richmond. The  fund raiser, released a burst of color and fun onto the streets, with 200 adults peddling bikes that are meant for 5 year olds. The shoppers come to a stand still as the parade swirled around them. It is a joyful event with an aim to raise money and awareness for mens health.

“It’s a great cause and we need a lot more people to donate.”

Fun and Movement are the objectives of the campaign in an effort to encourage mental and physical health. Currently three out of four suicides are men and on average five men each day take their life through suicide in Australia

The Movember Foundation is a global charity committed to men living happier, healthier, longer lives. Since 2003, millions have joined the men’s health movement, raising $685 million and funding over 1,000 programs focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.
