Our Disability Support Service client Dimitri has set out to ‘Grow a Mo’ and help raise funds for this important cause.
Movember is the leading charity changing the face of men’s health. Participants can chose to ‘Grow a Mo’, ‘Move for Mental Health’, ‘Host A Mo-Ment’ or ‘Mo Your Own Way’!
By raising awareness around men’s physical and mental health we can all help to support and educate the men in our lives about staying healthy and living longer.
Growing a Mo is like wearing a symbol during the month of November that represents healthier men and a healthier world and that men’s mental health matters.
Thanks to our wonderful team at our Parkdale site and in particular Julie Lawton who extended their support to help Dimitri setup his Movember fundraiser page. This is a wonderful example of how all people can contribute to the community at large.
In the video below Dimitri shares why he set out on raising funds and what type of ‘Moustache’ guy he is! As you can see, Dimitri is growing a fantastic looking moustache!
Q: Why have you decided to participate in Movember this year Dimitri?
A: Because I want to pitch in for men’s cancer, mental health and suicide
Q: How are you finding growing a moustache?
A: It’s pretty good, but it gets a bit itchy sometimes.
Q: Have you ever grown one before?
A: Yes, but not this big
Q: What style of moustache are you planning on growing?
A: Well there’s different kinds of moustaches, I’m not a curly moustache kind of guy, I’m what you’d call a comb kind of moustache guy – just straight!
What a wonderful example of our client’s ability to contribute to the community at large, and the Movember fundraiser, in this case, specifically focuses on men’s mental health.”
