Our Motivation

We, the members of MOV~ing Mackay Cricket Club hope with our Mo Space and that of our Captain Dr Sanjeev Bandi, to inspire & motivate Men worldwide to change millions more this Movember. We will start with a clean shaven face on the 1st of Nov 2019 as usual & try to emulate our feats from 2018 when we raised $ 91,731 to be the 3rd Highest Fund Raising Team in Australia and 15th worldwide with the support of the community. Since 2011 we have raised an amazing $ 468,498.66 as a Team of Mo Bros from Mackay in 8 campaigns($ 29301.85 in 2011, $ 39328 in 2012, $ 44920.15 in 2013, $ 53004.09 in 2014, $59,499.69 in 2015, $ 67023 in 2016, $ 83690.88 in 2017 and $ 91731 in 2018) with the unrelenting support of the generous community of Mackay and Whitsundays.

Team Moves

0 km / 2017 km

As a Team dedicated to raising the profile of Men's Health within the community we pledge to try and cover the same kilometres as this year ie. 2017 by the end of our campaign......

The incredible generosity of the communities of Mackay and Whitsundays has helped me raise $396,809 individually since 2008 and $ 5990 already till date in 2020 during this untimely pandemic. After years of lobbying, we have finally been able to get the first PROSTATE CANCER SUPPORT NURSE for the region. My Team MOV~ing Mackay Cricket Club, which I am proud to Captain since inception in 2011 has now raised an incredible $548,621.16 for Movember and the Movember Cricket Challenge- https://au.movember.com/story/view/id/12285/23-million-investment-for-prostate-cancer-specialist-nursing-service?tag=prostate-cancer

5. Move, more.
Add more activity to your day. Do more of what makes you feel good.
* Take a walking meeting
* Park further away from the station
* Get off the bus a stop or two earlier
* Instead of the lift, take the stairs
* Cycle to work instead of driving

3. Know the numbers.
At 50, talk to your doctor about prostate cancer and whether it’s right for you to have a PSA test. If you are of African or Caribbean descent or have a father or brother with prostate cancer, you should be having this conversation at 45. Know your numbers, know your risk, talk to your doctor.

4. Know thy nuts. Simple.
Get to know what’s normal for your testicles. Give them a check regularly and go to the doctor if something doesn’t feel right.

2. Talk, more.
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.

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.

MEN'S HEALTH
Across the world, men die an average six years younger than women, and for reasons that are largely preventable. Which means that it doesn’t have to be that way: we can all take action to live healthier, happier and longer lives.

HOW? HERE ARE OUR TOP FIVE THINGS TO KNOW, AND DO.
1. Spend time with people who make
you feel good.
Stay connected. Your mates are important and spending time with them is good for you. Catch up regularly, check in and make time.

Six men in Australia take their lives each day. This is just the tip of the iceberg.

Beyond the Emergency, new research released today through a collaboration with Turning Point Australia, Monash University, Beyond Blue and Movember Foundation Australia, reveals our paramedics see many suicidal behaviours that aren’t captured in hospital data.

Key facts and the full report here: http://mvmbr.co/2wmSINh

“I've worked in hospitals and clinics throughout my career. In those settings it’s often difficult to discuss men’s health in a down-to-earth way.”
The Movember Foundation is uniquely placed to address the crisis at a global level. They are funding ground-breaking programs all over the world, engaging with men where they are, to understand what works best, to help make change happen sooner.
Our goals are big, but the impact of doing nothing is bigger. We need to act.
By 2030, we’ll reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%.

Men experience worse longer-term health than women and die on average six years earlier. Prostate cancer rates will double in the next 15 years. Testicular cancer rates have already doubled in the last 50. Three quarters of suicides are men. Poor mental health leads to half a million men taking their own life every year. That’s one every minute.
Our fathers, partners, brothers and friends are facing this health crisis and it’s not being talked about.
We can’t afford to stay silent.
“In truth, there are a lot of blokes out there doing it tough, but the tragedy is, we don’t talk about it.”
