Rally team supports ‘Movember’
- 7th November 2007, 2:13pm
For the 2007 NGK Rally of Melbourne and all through Movember (the month formerly known as November) the boys from the Sbaru Parts Racing Team (including the car) will be growing a Mo to help raise money for the fight against male depression and prostate cancer.
• Depression affects 1 in 6 men. Most don't seek help. Untreated depression is a leading risk factor for suicide.
• Last year in Australia 18,700 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer and more than 2,900 died of prostate cancer - equivalent to the number of women who die from breast cancer annually.
• Men are far less healthy than women. The average life expectancy of males is five years less than females.
The money raised by Movember is donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and beyondblue - the national depression initiative, which will use the funds to create awareness, fund research and increase support networks for those men who suffer from prostate cancer and male depression.
