CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR MO BROS!

The beginning of December is often seen as the final countdown to Christmas … however, for two highly esteemed Preston Hire staff members, the 1st December signified the end of MOVEMBER!!!

Our two Mo Bros, David Serg and Wes Munro, proudly endured their hair-raising experience throughout the month of November to raise awareness for much-needed funds for prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.

Both David and Wes were great sports and together raised over $1200! A mighty effort!

So what did the boys have to say about the experience?

DAVID

As a senior manager in business, I wanted to put myself out there to join anyone else that wanted to also support and raise money for this cause. Movember appealed to me as it holistically raises awareness for Men’s Health and is broader than other events that focus on one particular cause.

I will admit that I liked the idea and quirkiness of having to do something (grow a mo) as opposed to just donating. I was reminded everyday of what I was doing it for. I liked the idea of being in public places seeing other men with mo’s and feeling a brotherhood and sharing in doing something to help others. I was surprised by the number of other participants also growing a mo when I travelled interstate and was in public places.

At the conclusion of the month, I haven’t changed my thinking about Movember specifically, apart from now having a better understanding of the event. I have never grown a moustache nor a beard previously and found it a little physical uncomfortable, but pleased I can tick it off the bucket list!

Next time I would seek advanced permission from my wife as from a timing perspective it was not ideal … we had a number of important events on throughout the month and all photographs of these occasions will show me with a mo!

I am very grateful for those that supported me and thank them all kindly for their donations and encouragement.

WES

Getting involved with Movember this year was motivated specifically by wanting to do my part to raise awareness and funds for Prostate Cancer. My father died of Prostate Cancer and I have a couple of mates who have been diagnosed with it, so this was my way to offer support.

I’m a member of the largest Men’s Support Group in Victoria. It is run by the Western Bulldogs Football Club and now has over 1000 members. We all do our bit to support one another and I really enjoyed being part of Movember this year.

I’m proud of the funds that I raised and am really thankful to everyone who supported me from work colleagues through to family members.

The worst part of the experience was not getting any kisses from the wife (but maybe that is a good thing!! Hahaha!!). The most rewarding part is helping out a great cause and doing my bit.

Well Done guys!
Thank you for representing Preston Hire and getting involved. You have gone above and beyond and all your Mo Bros and Sisters are thankful for your efforts.
