Target: €3,000
raised €6,505 since 2020
My motivation
Fundraising for cause areas including:
Men's health
Prostate cancer
Testicular cancer
Mental health and suicide prevention

This Movember is particularly important to us. Earlier this year, we lost our Dad, Nick, due to complications from diabetes, heart disease and prostate cancer at only 66 years of age.

Movember was set up to "change the face" of men's health and aims to tackle the alarming increase in suicide amongst young men, early cancer detection, diagnosis and effective treatments, ultimately reducing the number of preventable deaths. Besides annual check-ups, the Movember Foundation encourages men to be aware of family history of cancer and to adopt a healthier lifestyle.

As Dad donned a Mo' for 20+ years of his life, it is only fitting that this November, we are going to grow one too to raise awareness. In addition to this, Dad was a keen long distance runner, competing in the 5,000m at national and international meets as a schoolboy.

Stephen is going to raise further awareness by running 120km throughout the course of the month in his honour and to all men struggling with physical and mental health difficulties (tracked below through Strava!)

We are also going to make a €500 contribution to the Irish Heart Foundation and Diabetes Ireland charities.

We would appreciate any donation, big or small and would encourage anyone else to get involved and join this worthy cause! Running partners would be very welcome!

On y va!

Hi Stephen and Mark

I wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the amazing amount you have raised so far for Movember and in honour of your dad Nick – you’re Mo Legends and you’ve secured your spot in our exclusive Platinum Club 2023!

Thanks to you, more men can live healthier and longer lives. To read about some of the projects you’ve helped to fund go to movember.com/impact

Being in our Platinum Club means you get priority invites to our events, as well as other perks throughout the year. I hope the Mo's are coming along nicely and congratulations on the 65km so far - best of luck with the rest of the hairy season.

United we Mo
