N Live’s Charity of the Month for November will be Movember.
The campaign raises awareness of health issues in men such as testicular cancer and in Northampton the Saints and their captain Dylan Hartley are particularly noted for leading the way.
A statement from the club said:
The current state of men’s health is in crisis. On average, men are dying six years younger than women. This isn’t good news. We need to talk about it. We need to act.
Our fathers, partners, brothers and friends are facing this health crisis and without people talking, taking action and giving money, nothing will change.
We want you to join our team, sign-up on Movember.com and raise vital funds and awareness. Go to Movember.com and join the team HERE.
The Movember Foundation is funding ‘Move Like A Pro’, a program that is transforming the lives of hundreds of rugby fans, by allowing them to train with their local Premiership Rugby team’s coaches. The course is forming long term friendships between participants and helping men take control of their physical and mental health. Together, we are reaching our goal of men living happier, healthier and longer lives.
Help support this program, and hundreds more combating prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s mental health issues. Saints players will be sporting moustaches, and we want supporters to do the same.
There are also more ways to get involved. Why not take on a physical challenge or host a fundraising event for the Movember Foundation? Set a distance goal and walk, run, swim, cycle or row your way to achieving it. It’s not about being the fittest or the fastest, it’s about having fun, doing good and raising funds along the way.
Join us, and be the difference this Movember.
