Target: $4,000
raised $62,045 since 2009
My motivation
Fundraising for cause areas including:
Men's health
Prostate cancer
Testicular cancer
Mental health and suicide prevention

There are a lot of things that plague humanity (and these past few years have really driven that point home), but I'm here to lend a hand spreading awareness and to fight the good fight against a few of these. Movember is about raising awareness and research money for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health. We all know people who have been affected by at least one of these - and we have it in us to make life better. You can help us stop men from dying too young, whether due to cancer or suicide.

This is year number 14 as a Mo Bro! The team has dwindled to just me. That being said, I am an army of one - and we will do my best to push awareness for this! I feel that it's my duty to represent the ever-increasing number of people that I know who are suffering.

Thank you to everyone that has contributed - both now and in the past. These are very important issues.

Let's do this!

Movember 2022 has come to an end – and it has been one for the record books! Thanks to the generosity of so many people (203 to be exact), we have raised $10,000 – this is fantastic (and that’s just at the time of publishing this post)! In addition, I have officially moved over 100 km – which makes me regret not recording all of my walks and runs.

Big thanks to everyone - especially my family! Love you all!

We are in the 11th hour now. We take a serious Movember photo every year (because raising money can be a serious business) - but we certainly have fun being serious! All respect to Marvel Studios and Disney - but we thought this would make a nice poster for Movember.

Day 11. Remembrance Day.

Mental health is extremely important.

Please consider donating to the Poppy Fund at your local Legion. Money goes towards grants for Veterans and their families in need.

Alternatively (or in addition), you can donate to Movember, which also helps awareness, research and support for men's mental health. As an example of what Movember can do, a $50 donation can help prepare a man with a plan on how and when to reach out to a friend who's struggling with their mental health through the Movember Conversations program.

Day six - how's tricks? This is the awkward part - where growth has started but not enough to look like more than just a stain on my face. Would love to see if we can beat last year - will you help?

Day 4. There have been a few challenges lately - things that clearly affect one's mental state. However, no matter how bad things get, it is important to make sure that you talk to someone. I am lucky to have a wonderful support network of people close to me. Not everyone else is so lucky. Your dollars help to fund programs that contribute to services and research that helps those men in need.

Day 8! Nor too shabby...

It has been a tough and busy week. After having gone through surgery for gallbladder removal, I have been in recovery. I can't imagine how difficult it is to go through treatment for prostate cancer or testicular cancer.

Futhermore, this week has demonstrated the strength of my support network - which throws the struggle of many men suffering from mental health issues into very sharp relief - men who have no such support network, and suffer in silence as a consequence.

I am very fortunate to be in a position that allows me to try and help those who cannot help themselves. Please donate to the cause. Every little bit really helps!
