ABOUT THE EVENT

During Mo-vember (the month formerly known as November) men all over the world are growing moustaches to raise awareness for Men’s Health Issues. Movember started in Australia and has now made its way all the way around the world (the long way round that is!), to South Africa. By growing moustaches in the month of Movember we are able to raise awareness and funds in aid of Men’s Health and Cancer.

In South Africa, Movember has partnered with the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) and together, are raising funds in aid of Prostate and Testicular Cancers. Both these cancers are very treatable if detected early.
 
So what’s with the bowling I here you say???

A buddy an I decided that we could have even more fun with our moustaches if we organise a lawn bowls competition....obviously in the obligatory fancy dress. (teams have to dress according to their mo...i.e. Think Tom Sellek, Hulk Hogan...I’m sure you get the picture)
 
In its fourth year, Go Bowling for Movember, will be hosted at the Kelvin Grove Club on the Sunday 27th Movember. Last 2010's event was a great success and we raised over R40 000 for CANSA.....check out our youtube the video below. Bowling for Movember is an opportunity for all those who have grown their moustache in support of Men’s Health Issues to show off their mo’s and bowling prowess in style. Full bar, DJs, café and sponsor stands. There’ll also be a nurse and CANSA representative there on the day, who will have all the info you need on Prostate and Testicular Cancer.



Don’t forget!!  The money raised by Movember is used to raise awareness of men's health issues and donated to the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA). CANSA will use the money raised to fund research, increase awareness of the importance of early detection and improve the support networks for those affected with prostate or testicular cancer.

Thanks  for your support.
