Itís Movember Again
Once again the team at Kitcheners ® Kitchens has decided to ditch the razors for the month of Movember, in a bid to raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer and male depression. 3,000 men die of prostate cancer each year in Australia while one in eight men experience depression in their lifetime. Ití s something very close to heart for the team at Kitcheners ® and they are looking to raise even more than the fantastic amount of $3,760 they raised last year.
Movember is in its seventh year and has continued to grow, both in terms of participation numbers and funds raised. So much so that last year over 128,000 Mo Bro & Sistas got on board, raising more than $21 million. This money goes towards the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and beyondblue: the national depression initiative. Together, they work to ensure that Movember funds are supporting a broad range of innovative, world-class programs in the fields of research, education, support, and awareness.
Having started in Australia, Movember now takes place in nine other countries - New Zealand, USA, Canada, UK, Finland, the Netherlands, Spain, South Africa and Ireland.
