My motivation
Fundraising for cause areas including:
Men's health
Prostate cancer
Mental health and suicide prevention

Issues that hit close to home and never get easier. With history of mental illness in my family and having suffered struggles in recent years myself, along with losing my grandfather who was one of my best friends to prostate cancer this cause means a lot to me.

As an educator it is important to be a role model, to raise awareness and to be a change maker in this very important space - particularly for the young men who are held to societal pressures and suffer invisibly or openly from mental health struggles .

For Movember I'm back on board for the 12th year and raising funds and awareness to tackle the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and poor mental health. Help me change the future of men’s health

Take a deep breath and take a bow. Because it’s official, you made it!

You’ve been with us on the journey to change the face of men’s health and we couldn’t be more grateful.

It is because of you that this Movember was the Schools Challenge's most successful ever! This year we had over 1150 more School Mo's than last year, 200 more school communities participate in the month and lastly you have collectively raised over $720,000 for critical men's health projects, that's $50,000 more than last year! But we aren't finished yet School Mo's.

A reminder that leaderboards officially close at 3pm AEDT on Tuesday December 12. Donations can still be received after this time but this is the cutoff to crown our 2023 Movember champions in the School leaderboards!

Keep sharing those photos on the Movember Schools Challenge - it really is so inspiring seeing what you Mo's are up to in your school community! Challenging outdated masculine stereotypes and creating an environment where young people can be vulnerable and their true authentic self.

From the tips of our Mo's to the bottom of our hearts - THANK YOU!

We are 17 days into the Hairy Season and boy are things heating up!

We have 629 School Communities all across Australia taking part in the hairy season this year. That is 150 more Schools than last year and testament to the passion of the school community in opening space for honest conversations. Bravo!

Mo’s - If you haven’t yet, it’s time to start planning your end of month Mo celebrations, Move events or any opportunity that brings you and your school community together to continue setting the scene for young people to be vulnerable and the power of conversation.

It ain't Scary being Hairy,

Mo 22 - those Mo's will be feeling furrier, your legs fitter and your events ready to pop off!

With Moriah College out in front on the Schools Leader board competition is heating up for second spot - with the Farrer Year 12 cohort currently edging out one of my favourite team names 'Who let the Mo's out' from Trinity College Gawler.

Regardless of the fundraising figures - keep parading that furry top lip, moving your MOstest, starting conversations and keeping your communities connected. Your are all doing such a fabulous job and all of us at Mo HQ are so grateful to be your Roadies.

ONE DAY TO MO.

I hope those follicles are fretting and those sneakers are laced up as tomorrow we MO!

Make sure you SHAVEDOWN tomorrow so those upper lip slugs grow fresh from the 1st of Movember!

Mover's - get cracking on Mo 1 and make sure you post a pic! Can't wait to see all of the pic's posted in this Challenge!

No matter what you do for Movember your efforts are inspiring change and stopping men from dying too young.

Mo On,
Ollie
