Movember's got a new MOVE!
We’re delighted to announce Ray D'Arcy, Roz Purcell, Andrew Stanley and Rob Heffernan as ambassadors for our ‘MOVE’ initiative.

As part of the Irish MOVEment, comedian, Andrew Stanley, TV and radio presenter, Ray D’Arcy, model and food blogger, Rozanna Purcell, and Irish Olympian, Rob Heffernan, will pave the way for the Irish people to take a stand and increase awareness for men’s health, by getting active throughout the month of MOVEmber. The four MOVE Ambassadors will lead the charge by each taking on their own individual challenge. The nation can follow their efforts on Twitter @MovemberIreland throughout the month.

Mo Bros and Mo Sistas of Ireland are invited to register to MOVE and commit to 30 MOVEs in 30 days.

Rozanna Purcell, foodie, Mo Sista and MOVE Ambassador, said: “Irish women may not be able to grow a Mo but this year we can MOVE! I am very health conscious when it comes to my diet and lifestyle and I’m hoping to encourage others to make a conscious effort when it comes to their health and mental well-being. Make sure to track my progress on twitter over the month or even match my MOVE using #MOVEWithRoz.”

“It’s great to be part of such a positive Movember initiative that focuses on men’s health in its entirety, from mental to physical, and just how important being active is to both,” said Ray D’Arcy, media personality, Mo Bro and MOVE Ambassador. “I’ll be interested to see how my fellow MOVE leaders fair out. My MOVE plan might be a tiny bit easier than Rob’s but as long as it’s a challenge, I’m doing my bit and you can do the same. Set your own challenge on Movember.com if you don’t want to match my MOVE!” continued Ray.

We’re inviting the nation to join the MOVEment and become a champion of men’s health with the 2015 MOVE Ambassadors. Everyone is encouraged to walk the walk, talk the talk, run the run or swim the swim for Movember. Fundraisers can keep up to date and join in the conversation at #MOVEforMovember and follow the MOVE plan of your choice at #MOVEwithRob, #MOVEwithRoz, #MOVEwithRay or #MOVEwithAndrew.
