GOTAFE GVL to Take Part in the Movember “Mo Cup”

Movember is the leading charity changing the face of men's health, and this Movember, the GOTAFE Goulburn Valley League (GVL) is joining the fun.

Movember sees men across Australia “Grow a Mo to save a Bro”. Supported by Mo Sisters, the fundraising effort over November helps raise vital funds mental health & suicide prevention, prostate cancer & testicular cancer. Our fathers, partners, brothers and friends are facing a health crisis, yet it’s rarely talked about. Men are dying too young. We can’t afford to stay silent.

2020 has been a year of curveballs and challenges, and we’re still in the thick of it. Research conducted by Movember earlier this year showed some worrying signs around the state of men’s mental health. Many of the men in our lives are struggling with uncertainty, social isolation and anxiety about the future, and it’s starting to take its toll.

 

  • Research by the men’s health charity showed 23% of men said their mental health had worsened in the first six weeks of the pandemic, with 30% noting increased feelings of loneliness
  • Additionally, calls to Lifeline increased by 25% when physical distancing kicked in and in Victoria in particular, there has been an increase in self-harm indicators that may result in higher rates of suicide in the future.

To help support this initiative the GVL Board are supporting a GOTAFE Goulburn Valley League Mo’ Premiership Cup Challenge. Board Chairman David Roff & Board Member Brett Stevens are leading the charge for the board and will be growing a Mo.

Mr Roff says, “We’re putting the challenge out to everyone at each of our member clubs, and across the community, to join us in the inaugural GOTAFE GVL Mo’ Premiership Cup Challenge. We are encouraging people to sign up as a Mo Bro or Mo Sister, join their team and help raise vital funds and awareness of mens’ health.”

Together we can make a difference for men's health – in prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.

GVL Operations Manager Jo Spencer said, “The inaugural GOTAFE GVL Mo Cup Premiership is going to be a fun way to raise awareness for a vital cause. It’s also a great way to get players, coaches, committee, trainers, volunteers and more involved. At the end of the month, the team that has raised the most funds will take out the inaugural GOTAFE GVL Premiership Mo Cup.”
