I would like to thank the members of MOV~ing Mackay Cricket Club who joined me to make this trip worthwhile namely Brian Paull, Bevan Cooper, Mick Hamilton and William George Taylor. Sorry the other 6 members of the playing 11 namely Brendon Moohin, John Truloff, Daniel Pollock, Mitchell Pollock, Michael Ross and Tony Jenkins were not able to partake in the event due to other commitments.
Hi from the Gabba with the members of MOV~ing Mackay Cricket Club wearing the ASICS CRICKET AUSTRALIA EMBOSSED TRAINING GEAR which was part of the prize for being the best team in Cricket Cares Network for Movember 2013.
G’day Mackay Cricket Club,
Well, what an epic month we’ve all just had. The Mackay Cricket Club has been hard at work flying the flag for men’s health; uniting 20 Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to raise over $45,000 for Movember is a huge achievement and we are truly grateful.
In recognition of your most impressive efforts and very creative Movember XI photo, we’re delighted to let you know the Mackay Cricket Club has won the Club Cricket Cares Prize Package – congratulations from all of us here at Mo HQ. We really appreciate all the hard work that has gone into the team’s fundraising efforts and from looks of Sanjeev’s posts’ it seems everyone had an awesome time.
We have been lucky enough to have the support of the Mackay Cricket Club for a number of years and 2013 has been another strong year with eight Mo Bro’s joining the platinum club and Sanjeev raising an incredible $30,000 — well grown everybody!
11 tickets to attend the Carlton One Day Series in Brisbane on 17 January, 2014.
Official Cricket Australia ASICS training apparel kit for the club including 11 shirts, shorts and caps
Autographed cricket bat signed by the Australian Cricket Team
What now . . .
As the prize package offers 11 tickets and 11 apparel kits, some tough decisions may be required. I would encourage you to reward those Mo Bros who put in the hard yards this Movember, be it through tireless organisation, relentless fundraising or ultimate cultivation.
We will send tickets to Brisbane’s Carlton ODI your way along with the autographed cricket bat signed by the Aussie Cricket Teams. Please confirm the best postal address to receive this.
We also need you to have a discussion between the 20 Mo Bro’s to decide who will receive the ASICS training apparel kit. Once decided if you could send through sizes before Friday 20th December, we can work on getting the crew kitted up for summer.
Once again a huge congratulations and thank you to everyone involved in the Mov-ing Mackay Cricket Club Weet-Bix My Cricket team.
United we Mo.
Changing the face of men's health
The 3 Mo Spaces linked to the campaign ie. my personal Mo Space, The Team Mo Space and the Network Mo Space were updated daily with events and snippets on Men's Health topics this year and seem to have been well received by the patrons and well wishers. I will endeavour to do the same in 2014 as well.

Z: Zee Time is Now
Australian men are more likely to get sick from serious health problems, such as cancer than Australian women.
Their mortality (death) rate is also much higher.
The poor health status of Australian men is complicated by the fact that men are more likely than women to shy away from medical treatment of any kind.
The lack of health awareness and unwillingness to adopt a healthier lifestyle also disadvantages men.
Men have a higher death rate than women
The Australian Bureau of Statistics ‘Mortality Atlas Australia’ (December 2010) shows that the death rate from the main causes of death is generally higher for men than women.
The average death rate per 100,000 persons ( upto 2010) includes:
Those causes where a high proportion of deaths were males included:
Intentional self-harm (Suicide, (X60-X84) - 76.9% and 333 male deaths for every 100 female deaths
Trachea and lung cancers (C33-C34) - 60.9% and 156 male deaths for every 100 female deaths
Blood and lymph cancers (including leukaemia) (C81-C96) - 58.1% and 139 male deaths for every 100 female deaths
Colon and rectum cancers (C18-C21) - 55.3% and 124 male deaths for every 100 female deaths
Ischaemic heart disease (I20-I25) - 53.9% and 117 male deaths for every 100 female deaths
Chronic lower respiratory diseases (J40-J47) - 52.7% and 111 male deaths for every 100 female deaths.
My Theories for the above:
* Males are more likely than females to suffer from genetic disorders, so are inherently ‘weaker’ and more susceptible to illness. Most researchers do not support this theory.
Men are encouraged by our culture to be tough. Many men believe that complaining of feeling ill or visiting the doctor is a threat to their masculinity or a waste of time, unless they are sick or injured.
* Health is largely determined by social factors such as education status, employment and income. Men from low socioeconomic backgrounds make up one of the sickest subgroups in Australia.
* Unlike women, men (particularly younger men) do not value good health and
Males in Western societies, such as Australia, are less inclined than women to take an active role in maintaining their own health. They are also less likely to seek professional help for problems, particularly those of an emotional nature.
Some of the social and cultural reasons for this include:The Western definition of masculinity includes strength and silence. Men may feel that it is a sign of weakness or ‘femininity’ to seek help.
Males, particularly younger men, tend to act as if they are invulnerable. This can lead to destructive behaviour such as drug or alcohol binges, reckless driving or other risky behaviour.
Women are more likely to have regular contact with doctors because of periods, contraception and pregnancy issues.
Men don’t have a similar ‘system’ that requires them to regularly see a doctor, and are less likely to recognise or ‘act on’ signs of risk.
The above facts have been the Inspiration for all my campaigns till date....and I hope they will inspire many more........
Congratulations Mo Bro Peter Siddle on seeing the back of Carberry thanks to a great catch by Nathan Lyon in the deep.....
Well bowled Mo Bro Mitchell Johnson on getting the prize wicket of the English Captain again in the second innings in Adelaide....to start the rot.....
Got this book as a Christmas gift from one of my grateful patients and can highly recommend it to anyone who likes the game .....
I would like to congratulate Mo Bro Mitchell Johnson on being the second Mo Bro to get past the 20,000 mark in the 2013 campaign. Well Done and may the Power of the Mo .......take you to greater heights in all your endeavors...
It is nice to see the Baggy green get the respect it deserves.... Well done Mo Bro you are indeed a true inspiration... Keep it up
Here are some more memories of a great day for a fellow Mo Bro .....
