Whitsunday Jetski Tours’ five male staff have taken on a new challenge and a new alias, in the form of the Whitsunday Jet Mos. The team are supporting well know charity, Movember, raising funds for men’s health with a ‘mo’ of their own.
Movember is the leading charity changing the face of men’s health. Since 2003, Movember has funded more than 1,250 men’s health projects around the world, challenging the status quo, shaking up men’s health research and transforming the way health services reach and support men. By 2030, Movember aim to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%.
Heading the Whitsunday Jet Mos is owner of Whitsunday Jetski Tours, Steve Ward, supported by staff members Ian Wilson, Alex Taylor, Nathan Linnell and Rick Dawson.
Mr Ward said, “The team have been proudly growing and manicuring their fine new facial hair and now it’s time to show it off and ask for people to support us with our Movember fundraising goal. We are aiming to raise $2,000 by the end of November and are confident we can reach this amount.”
“We are participating in Movember as we all have so many important boys and men in our lives, from our Whitsunday Jetski Tours crew to our family including sons, brothers, fathers, grandfathers, uncles and family friends. It’s always time to look after them and be aware of men’s physical and mental conditions. We have experienced men’s health issues on a personal level, as have most people, so we feel this is a charity that everyone would be passionate about and can resonate with,” continued Mr Ward.
Funds raised through Movember go towards world-class programs in the areas of mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.
