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

Raising awareness about Men’s Health and removing the stigma attached to Men’s Health issues is the main reason why I do this, and it’s for my kids.

We’re all busy, but part of ‘being a man’ is to soldier on and keep going, because after all, there’s always something more important right?? This is what lets men down. The ‘She’ll be right’ culture around Men’s Health needs to change and I want to be a part of that. I want Sebastian and Noah to have the confidence to be able to talk if they’re experiencing any issues, I want them to know to go to the doctor if something isn’t right, I want them to know that it’s ok to share your emotions, I want the education around Men’s Health to be more prominent and accessible.

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.

15km - 72 minutes - 72 men that we lost to suicide.

Globally, we lose one guy per minute to suicide

We need to reduce this statistic.

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.

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?

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.

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,
Dan

Proud of the little man
