November is officially Movember or the month of the moustache, a time when men worldwide grow moustaches and host events to support prostate cancer and depression initiatives.
In 2010, 130,000 Australian’s participated in the event and raised $25 million for the causes.
Alex Whitford, who runs Barossa Valley Collision at Tanunda, participated in the 2010 event and raised $7,500. This year he hopes to raise $10,000.
Alex said on his Movember page that he is involved in the event because he wants to support men’s health.
“Provide a fun environment, to get the message out and celebrate men’s health,” he said.
