Movember is about raising awareness and funding to save and improve men’s lives. This is achieved through health programmes focused on education, early detection and putting wrap around support services in place for prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.[/lead]
The Veros team have thrown a lot of awareness at the good cause of Movember this month. As well as raising funds on our dedicated Movember page we have 8 (interesting) moustaches and over 200km of running kilometres clocked up in the running challenge.
Lead moustache grower and Senior Project Manager, Tomas Vienazindis from the Veros Hamilton office says: “Movember is definitely not about looking good. It’s about raising awareness for a very good cause. Many of us have been affected in some way by men’s cancer or mental health issues through those family or friends closest to us. On average men die less than 6 years before women so there is still a lot to be done in this area, so as a team we are doing our little bit.”
