Meet Mo Bro David and his number one fan, his son Malcolm

Mo Bro Spotlight: David Hicks
Meet Mo Bro David and his number one fan, his son Malcolm.  David has been a part of the Movember family for five years. His reason for joining Movember? That would be his six year old son! Even though Malcolm can’t quite grow his own moustache yet, he's been deemed a junior Movemberist and loves to help his Dad raise funds.

Mo Bro David’s team, the Movemberists, has now grown to over 30 participants, and has been supported and featured globally. David first got involved through Movember in 2009, when he and a friend decided to join the cause to help fight against prostate cancer and raise awareness about men’s health. David’s mother is a breast cancer survivor, and because of this he had done a lot of campaign work for breast cancer awareness.  However, throughout his campaign involvement he noticed that there were a limited number of initiatives that targeted men’s health issues, which then led him to stumble upon Movember.  

Last year, David kicked off the Movember season early by auctioning off the style of his first pre-Movember moustache style.  Mo Bro’s and Mo Sistas were rallied up to donate to David’s Mo Space; with the highest donation having the chance to pick what style David shaves his moustache into, before the Movember 1st shave off date.  The lucky winner decided that David should shave his Mo to look like Hercule Poirot, which David happily obliged to.

Last year, David and his team were able to raise almost $6,000 and they are hoping this year to raise even more! Why not help him reach his goal by donating to his Mo Space!
