Some 14 Noosa Council staff are about to “grow the MoBro” to raise funds and awareness of men’s health issues.

Staff are keen to improve on last year’s figure of $4317.

Infrastructure Services manager Craig Eldridge said the team was determined to make an impact to stop men dying too young.

“We are quite motivated to see men live a happier, healthier life and have arrange a number of fundraising events to raise as much as we can for the Movember Foundation,” he said.

“We are also competing in the Local Government Movember Challenge against other councils in Australia, so there is a little extra motivation to take that title.”

The Movember Foundation is the only global charity focused solely on men’s health. The foundation raisea funds that deliver innovative, breakthrough research and support programs to enable men to live happier, healthier, longer lives.
