Hi All,

During Movember (the month formerly known as November) I'll be growin a Mo. That's right I'm bringing the Mo back because I'm passionate about changing men's health and the fight against male depression and prostate cancer. Why...

Depression affects 1 in 6 men...Most don't seek help. Untreated depression is a leading risk factor for suicide.

Last year in Australia 18,700 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer and more than 2,900 died of prostate cancer - equivalent to the number of women who die from breast cancer annually.

Men are far less healthy than women. The average life expectancy of males is 5 years less than females.

To sponsor my Mo please go to http://www.movember.com/au/donate, enter my registration number which is 88590 and your credit card details. Or you can sponsor me by cheque made payable to the "Movember Foundation" clearly marking the donation as being for my Registration Number: 88590. Please mail cheques to: PO Box 292, Prahran VIC 3181. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.

The money raised by Movember is donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and beyondblue - the national depression initiative, which will use the funds to create awareness, fund research and increase support networks for those men who suffer from prostate cancer and male depression.

For those that have supported Movember in previous years you can be very proud of the impact it has had and can check out the detail at: Fundraising Outcomes.

Movember culminates at the end of the month at the Gala Partés. These glamorous and groomed events will see Tom Selleck and Borat look-a-likes battle it out for their chance to take home the prestigious Man of Movember title. If you would like to be part of this great night you'll need to purchase a Gala Parté ticket .


Thanks for your support

Elvis

Awesome cause. Whenever I get back on my feet financially, I'll definitely love to add to this cause.

UFC COMMUNITY WORKS JOINS FORCES WITH MOVEMBER TO HELP CHANGE THE FACE OF MEN’S HEALTH


UFC to match all donations up to a maximum of $25,000 as fighters Nick Ring and Patrick Coté compete as Mo Bros in Montreal on November 17


The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is proud to announce its collaboration with Movember as part of its UFC Community Works program surrounding UFC 154: ST-PIERRE vs. CONDIT, taking place at Montreal’s Bell Centre on November 17. UFC middleweights Patrick Côté and Nick Ring have committed to being Mo Bros for the month of November to help raise funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives, and will compete at UFC 154 on November 17 with their facial hair on full display. UFC Canada has reinforced its dedication to the cause by agreeing to match all donations made to the UFC team up to a maximum of $25,000.

To support Côté and Ring in their Movember efforts, consider joining or donating to the UFC team at http://ca.movember.com/team/660829 or network at http://ca.movember.com/mospace/network/UFC. Pictures of Côté and Ring’s Mo-growing efforts will also be made available at www.UFC.com.

A nationwide initiative launched by UFC Canada in 2011, the UFC Community Works® program is designed to make meaningful contributions to the Canadian communities where UFC events are held. The Community Works program name itself is a double entendre – it speaks to the notion that the UFC is going to do good work in the community and that communities work when they come together.

Côté and Ring will join more than 854,000 Mo Bros and Mo Sistas who raise funds by seeking out donations for their Mo-growing efforts (slang for moustache). Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of Movember prompting conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health in an effort to positively change attitudes and habits men have about their health, to educate about the health risks they face and to hopefully increase chances of early detection, diagnosis and effective treatment. Movember is the largest non-government funder of prostate cancer research in the world.

On November 17, the UFC will return to Montreal for the fifth time with UFC 154: ST-PIERRE vs. CONDIT at the Bell Centre. The event marks the highly anticipated return of local hero Georges St-Pierre who will face interim champion Carlos Condit after a 19-month break from action in the Octagon to unify the welterweight championship belt.
