My motivation
Fundraising for cause areas including:
Men's health

My mo’tivation is really quite simple - to highlight the importance of men standing up and taking responsibility for the health of our mates, and our own health.

We are all in a position to be a messenger for men’s health, whether you’re a Mo Sister who is Moving for Movember, or a Mo Bro growing a terrible moustache like me.

I’ve learnt over the past 10 Movembers that one person can make a hell of a difference. Together, we are literally changing the face of men’s health through the funds we raise.

Let’s keep the conversation mo’ing

It takes courage to speak up

I rowed 7 km00:32:38

32 men lost to suicide over 7km.

5km to go until the target 60km

33 men lost to suicide in the time it took me to row 7km.

One man every minute. Sixty men each hour. Every hour.

8km in 38:11. That’s 38 men we lost to suicide.

33 men took their own lives in the time it took me to row 7km this morning.

The Movember website has plenty of resources that can help you on your fundraising journey. Have a look, download what you need and chuck it up on your socials to help raise awareness about men's health issues, or even cheeky moustache facts

I rowed 5 km00:23:47

My 5km row this morning took 23 men lost to suicide.

One man lost for every minute ☹️

23 Week(s) Ago
I rowed 5 km00:22:35

22 men were lost to suicide while I rowed this morning.

Three out of four suicides are men. Too many are toughing it out and struggling alone.

We have to take action to improve mental health and reduce the rate of male suicide.

If a friend hasn’t seemed himself lately, it might be a sign that he’s struggling.

Globally, every minute, a man dies by suicide. In Australia, 75% of suicides are men.

What a shitty statistic.

It is ok to not be ok and it’s ok to talk about it to. It ain’t weak to speak.

Let’s talk mental health.

Gents, make a commitment this week to give one of your mates a call and just chat.

Over the past few weeks I’ve caught up with some good friends and one thing was clear - we need to talk more. Time goes so fast, and a few months can go by in the blink of an eye.

During that time so much can happen. It may be good, it may also be bad.

Talk to your mates and talk often. It’ll help to clear your mind, it’s great for your well-being too. I can tell you now, I always feel better after talking to my best mates.

Make a commitment and make a call

Did you know that in 1967 The Beatles gave away cardboard moustaches with their album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band??

Day 2 of Movember and I want to talk about mental health.

70% of men say their friends can rely on them for support, but only 48% say that they rely on their friends. In other words: we’re here for our mates, but worried about asking for help for ourselves. Reaching out is crucial.

Have open conversations.

You don’t need to be an expert and you don’t have to be the sole solution, but being there for someone, listening and giving your time can be life-saving.

Here’s a fun fact. Albert Einstein sported his moustache for over 50 years!! That’s commitment right there.

Make Man Time.

Stay connected. Your mates are important and spending time with them is good for you. Catch up regularly, check in and make time.

Words to live by. It helps to check in with your mates, not only to see how they're doing but also that chat about how you are doing. Don't underestimate the value of man time!!

I ran 6 km00:33:45

33 blokes took their lives when I was running this morning

6 km left in this years Move for Movember. Not going to lie, after a big week of work, late night kids basketball and a large quarter pounder meal for dinner, this was a struggle. Particularly with this morning’s humidity.

But, my struggles this morning are trivial compared to the blokes that I do this for.

126 Week(s) Ago
I ran 8 km00:42:48

42 blokes took their lives while I was running this morning.

The sweat was the real deal this morning!! Man, it’s a muggy morning in Brisbane this morning

I struggled hard this morning and was really annoyed when I got to the 6 km mark - how I was feeling was NOTHING compared to the blokes that are taking their lives.

So, I pushed another 2 km to struggle more.

Hello. Is it Mo you’re looking for?

126 Week(s) Ago

What’s your why??

This is my why - family. I’m incredibly proud of mine and everything I do is for them.

I like to think to myself that I’m incredibly lucky. We’re a happy, healthy family. @shellbutler83 and the boys are fantastic and make me feel complete and whole. I’m nothing without my family.

Both Shell and I try to bring the boys up in an incredibly loving environment where they know that it’s ok to talk about how you feel, how proud we are of them, and how important it is to be healthy.

Family. It’s my why.

126 Week(s) Ago

Yeah it does. It’s also a good conversation starter.

It’s great seeing a couple of extra moustaches around the office this year.

Alright team mates. After 8 Movember’s I’m comfortable that I just cannot grow a decent moustache, but I keep coming back.

Let’s get hairy, raise some awareness, raise some funds for The Movember Foundation, and have a cracking time.

Mo on,
