Movember mo-down - enter Lenny's Mo Bros
Written on the 18 November 2009 by Fiona Taylor
A team from Lenard’s are doing their bit for men’s health, by also sporting hairy upper lips for the month of Movember.
Lenard’s General Counsel Alan Bates said it was the second year ‘Lenny’s Mo Bros’ had got behind the charity initiative.
“I got involved last year to support the two worthy charities that will benefit from Movember; Beyond Blue and the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia, and to raise awareness of Men’s health issues generally,” Alan said.
“And we’re getting more staff and franchisees involved ever year.”
This year the Lenny’s Mo Bros have ten members (including one Mo Sister) and pictured above (left to right) are Lenny’s Mo Bros Jason Mitchell, Team Captain Mark Bennett, Alan Bates, Paul Lange and Stephen Erbacher.
Alan said the team had a fundraising target of $5,000 and although the Gloria Jean’s Coffees team was slightly ahead at this stage with $966 versus $685 he was not concerned.
“We usually get a rush of support towards the end of the month,” he said.
To make a donation to Alan or any of the Lenny’s Mo Bro’s and support the good cause:
Remember, all donations over $2 are tax deductible.
As Gloria Jean’s Coffees team spokesperson Denis Roche said last fortnight, people don’t realise nearly 3,000 men die of prostate cancer each year and one in eight men experience depression in their lifetime.
Giving a little can make a big difference.
