The UEA sporting community is coming together this month to support the charity Movember, focussed on raising awareness for men’s mental health.
For an individual wanting to get involved, you can ‘grow a mo’ over the month or it could be participating in the activities that have been organised by the sports clubs. These clubs will highlight opportunities to donate and the UEA+Moves app now offers a donation feature.
Tennis, Lacrosse, and Hockey have joined forces to put on events in which they try each other’s sports, money raised on the day and from tickets go towards Movember. This is happening on the 11th and 18th.
There are Movember touch rugby, netball, and rounders tournaments taking place.
Pole Fitness and Cheer Dance have organised ‘bring a boy’ to their respective sports. Which is likely to be an entertaining event as well as being for a good cause.
Watersports are also involved in Movember, there will be a 24 hour row from 12pm on 24th to 12pm on 25th happening on campus. Water Polo is also doing a land training fundraiser.
Movember is a great cause and covers important issues in our society so those who are able to get involved in events and donating should.
