Movember wraps up for 2016

Published: 2 December 2016 

Over the last few weeks we've been seeing facial hair popping up everywhere, with the Matter Solutions office being no exception! Six year Mo-bro Ben once again sported the famous masterpiece, with this year’s variation strikingly jolly.

Yesterday Ben picked up the razor to signal the end to this year's Movember effort.


Real talk for a second:

According to the Movember Foundation:
- More than than 3,300 Aussie men will die from prostate cancer in 2016
- 36 years old is the average age of a man diagnosed with testicular cancer
- Suicide is the leading cause of death for Australian men aged 15-44 years
- On average, six men each day take their own life

Many of us have lost men close to us through cancer and suicide, but that’s not to stop us from making a difference.

This year the Matter Solutions team has managed to raise $370 for the Movember Foundation and $2,200+ since 2010, which is a truly great effort (Thanks Ben!)

If you missed out on this year's Movember, remember that there is always next year.

In the meantime, you can still donate to the Matter Solutions Team and continue to raise awareness about the men who are dying too young.

We can’t wait to support Ben’s efforts next year, and until then we will truly miss Ben's marvellous Mo.
