At Tuggies we have one of the biggest men’s football programs in the region of any sport. Add to that all the loved dads, sons, partners and brothers, and men’s health is very important to our club community.
“The state of men’s health is in crisis. Men experience worse longer-term health than women and die on average six years earlier. Prostate cancer rates will double in the next 15 years. Testicular cancer rates have already doubled in the last 50. Three quarters of suicides are men. Poor mental health leads to half a million men taking their own life every year. That’s one every minute.” Movember
Movember is a great way for us to contribute to improvements in men’s health using one of our greatest strengths – our awesome club community. Tim O’Brien from SL8 is our team captain and we are gathering a strong team of hairy upper lips around him.
