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.

THANK YOU TO THE 448 GENEROUS DONORS THAT MADE MY 2023 CAMPAIGN ROCK! The Moustache called and I answered for the 16th year in a row. I grew. I moved. I hosted. I did it in my own unique way. All for healthier men and a healthier world. The hairy season may be over but take a look at the year that was. The generosity of the caring communities of Mackay, Gladstone, St. Lawrence and Whitsundays is here for the world to see. If you ever needed proof this is God’s country this is it…

Congratulations to the Australian Men’s Cricket Team, worthy winners against hosts India in the ICC World Cup final last night by six wickets.

Globally, we lose one man to suicide every 60 seconds.

Movember is encouraging fans to go ‘beyond the banter’ and to check in on a mate to ensure less men die for this largely preventable reason.

GET SUPPORT

GIVE SUPPORT

GO BEYOND BANTER
Being a man of more words is not about dialing up the banter. It is about carving out space for meaningful chats about the bigger stuff in life. From talking about the kids, the bills, a new job or a setback – the right conversation can make all the difference to a mate who might be struggling.

If we all dig a little deeper, we can help prevent more men from reaching a crisis point.

Thankfully, there are some solutions available. Dive in to my MO Space - https://mobro.co/sanjeevbandi or to www.mackayurology.com/movember-articles to browse A-Z of Men’s Health blogs for 2022 and 2023.

The MOVEMBER 2023 journey from the clean shaven face of Day 1 to Day 11 or Remembrance Day. My ‘Crab Claw’ and ‘Heart’ inspired Mo Stache is just settling into its preferred shape but the funds seem to be outstripping the hair growth currently.

Congratulations to the Australian Men’s Cricket Team on winning the First Test against South Africa in 2 days at the Gabba today by 6 wickets. I am sorry that patrons willing to go blue for the day to raise the profile of Men’s Health, Mental Illness and Suicide Prevention on Day 3 of the test at the Gabba did not get the chance this year. It would have gone a long way to support the cause of raising awareness of Men’s Health within the community.

A huge thank you to Azza, the favourite doorman at MiePlace Nightclub in Gladstone for donating the proceeds of sacrificing his beard last night for Men’s Health and well being and to MiePlace Nightclub for donating 50% of the door money from last night to our cause. We were able to raise a total of $4662.30 yesterday which will go a long way to fund research and programs in the region to stop our men dying too young.
