Movember 2019 – Team Canstruct

By October 17, 2019News

With November approaching, the Canstruct Team decided to participate in Movember.  When we started to look into the issues men face we were startled to learn that across the world, men die an average six years younger than women, and for reasons that are largely preventable.  By starting more conversations and addressing the issues impacting men’s lives we all can start to change the face of men’s health.

On Friday 13 September 2019 the Canstruct Team began Movember fundraising with the face auction. The winning bidder for each face gets to choose a design of moustache the person wears for the month of November.  A professional barber will shape these designs on Tuesday 5 November 2019 in the makeshift Canstruct Nauru Room barber shop.

With our very talented auctioneer Yvette Thorn in control of the afternoon proceedings, 10 men strutted down the catwalk in aid of this very worthy cause and raised an incredible $10,651.  A big shout out must go to all the very generous bidders that supported the Movember fundraiser and the Canstruct team below that are helping to make a bigger impact on men’s health.  We are all waiting with great anticipation for the November moustache design reveal.

A worthy mention must go to Rob Cattle for facilitating the BBQ lunch and to Dan Murphy for his entertaining costume changes throughout the afternoon.

We invite you to visit our Movember fundraiser page and take part on this great cause to help change the face of men’s health.
