My motivation
Fundraising for cause areas including:
Mental health and suicide prevention

Globally, the rate of suicide is alarmingly high, particularly in men. Too many men are ‘toughing it out’, keeping their feelings to themselves and struggling in silence. 75% of Suicides are men.

My mental health struggles peaked before we had our first child and I know first hand how difficult it can be becoming a Dad and beyond.

I have been fortunate enough to have been able to talk to others about my issues which has helped me immensely through my tough times but there are many Men out there who struggle to talk.

The Movember Foundation is aiming to reduce the rate of male suicide by 25% by 2030, and I want to help them get there by encouraging others Men to talk and share their worries.

Help me stop men dying too young.

Hey! Only me :)
 
I know chat regularly but I'm welcoming people on their mo spaces and didn't want to leave you out ;) It's great to have you back! We really appreciate you joining us again.
 
Thanks to Mo legends like you, in 2020 we were able to invest over £66million AUD in our key investment areas of mental health and suicide prevention, prostate and testicular cancer research and survivorship and men’s health education and awareness.  

If there is anything we can do to help make this Movember a success, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. I hope you have a great month!

Owain Doull kindly shared his personal reasons for supporting Movember last year. He's given his backing to the 150 as well. He talks about why it's important to keep supporting others, and reaching out for help when facing mental health issues ourselves.

Hey 150 crew, here are my top 3 tips to help raise vital funds for Movember.

1. Timing is everything. Pay day is approaching at the end of the month, a good time to ask for support. Start fundraising early as well, and it makes it easier to hit your target.
2. Donate to yourself, if you can. It can get the ball rolling, but also shows you're really serious about fundraising.
3. Rally your friends. More riders multiply your fundraising, together. See what you can achieve on a group ride.

Don't forget our water bottle and jersey rewards as well for raising £100 and £500 respectively. Best of luck!
