Movember in Leeds
Let’s start with two impactful figures: 1 in 8 men in the UK have experienced a mental health problem. 3 out of four 4 suicides are men.
Why not getting involved to raise awareness around men’s health this month? Well, TODAY?
The Movember Foundation has options for men and women.
As a man, you can grow your MO throughout the month, and raise funds. Or how physical appearance can create the buzz and raise awareness on men’s health.
Men and women, you can MOVE your body: set a distance, and move to reach it. You can walk, run, swim, cycle… and raise funds at the same time!
Grow your MO or MOVE your body, both can easily be done in Leeds. Here are some actions to get you going:
Keep an eye out for growing Mos and Beards, you might have Leeds fundraisers around you
Start a contest with your colleagues: why not start a walking challenge in your Leeds office?
Have a walk or a run on your lunchtime. We have been inspired lately by Workers Lunchtime. They explore the city of Leeds, try and offer Lunchtime activities around their workplace and feasible in one hour in all! Check their Instagram feed for some lunchtime inspiration: Workers Lunchtime
As a company, why not offering a barber pop-up to your men staff? We would recommend Philip Nicolas, The Gentleman’s Barber, based in Pudsey and offering pop-ups options for your store / your staff / your clients / and all the men around!
It’s still time to get involved, check out the Movember’s foundation website!
