MOVEMBER AT PELIKIN HQ
Our CEO (Sam), Head of Design (Matt), Development Manager (Sean) and Application Support Developer (Dickson) are joining the masses and participating in Movember this month.
The boys are spending the month growing their upper lip and clocking up 60km’s each to help support the Movember cause in its fight against prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.
All of the boys will be walking/running 60km’s this month for the 60 men lost to suicide every hour and in addition Sean will be growing a mo to save a bro.
Get some insight into why they’re tackling Movember 2019 and what it means to them!
‘I’ve participated in Movember 4 of the past 5 years. The cause really resonates with me as I’ve had family members experience both mental health issues and battle the BIG C… Thankfully with success! Running a moustache is the norm for me so this year as a mo-bro i’ll be doing the 60km challenge to raise awareness (and money!) for this incredible cause! Selfishly I’m also using it as motivation to exercise as my ‘Founder Bod’ has really started to take shape the past couple of months haha.’
‘In the past I’ve worked closely with young men going through very difficult times and I think it’s important encourage men to make the conversations surrounding mens mental health normal. It’s a great cause and if I can find a way in my day to day life to make a difference, why not!’
‘Working in an office it’s very easy to fall into the daily trap of poor routine. Move for Movember is a great way to get me out and about, support a great cause and encourage others to take their health seriously.’
‘Movember is such a great cause and I love that they’ve added Move for Movember this year. Physical health play’s such an important role in improving mental health. I love the idea that I can do something good for myself while helping others as well.’
