Movember at Chippenham RFC

2 months ago By Matthew Stephen

The ladies have their race for life, us men grow Mo's - Its nearly Movember at Chippenham RFC

The ladies have their race for life to raise awareness of woman’s health issues, us men grow Mo’S it’s a bit of fun with a serious message.

Movember has been around since 2004 with Deano being the captain of the “CRFC Mo Bros” for about 6 years.

If you have never heard of Movember, they are leading charity changing the face of men’s health, addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention, funding more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the world, encouraging men to become more aware of their health, talk more with their friends and be more active, improving their health and well-being.

In 2017, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas from across United Kingdom raised £8 million for the Movember Foundation. This wonderful thing is helping your fellow rugby club members with men’s health issues from mental health to cancer support.

We would love to see more of our members taking part this year. Its a bit of fun but every penny you raise goes to a good cause. You start with a clean shave on the 1st of November and see what you can produce by the end of the month. Hopefully people will see your efforts and further contribute to the fundraising.

So my lovely Mo bros and Mo sistas, sign up, join up, share and donate, the website is https://moteam.co/chippenham-rfc-mo-bros
