RAISING SUPPORT FOR MEN’S HEALTH THIS NOVEMBER
In an effort to raise funds and awareness around various men’s health issues, including testicular and prostate cancer, RE/MAX of Southern Africa has challenged its network and the public to either grow their moustaches (ladies are encouraged to grow their leg hair) or donate to The RE/MAX Foundation during the course of the month.
With the threat of COVID-19 in mind, Regional Director and CEO of RE/MAX of Southern Africa, Adrian Goslett, explains how the brand has had to adapt their usual Movember Championships to suit the current conditions. “With everyone still wearing face masks in public, growing a moustache to raise awareness around men’s health issues does not quite have the same effect. We, therefore, encourage each of our associates to donate just R10 to The RE/MAX Foundation. At the end of the month, we will then make one lump sum donation to the Movember Foundation to support their very important work around men’s health issues across the country,” Goslett explains.
Previously, the network has been able to raise over R25,000 in 2018 and over R22,000 in 2019 towards various men’s health organisations, including the Movember Foundation, through their Movember campaigns. With over 2,500 agents in the RE/MAX SA network, this year stands to be no different. Members of the public are also encouraged to make a donation towards the cause. Banking details for The RE/MAX Foundation can be found HERE.
“We encourage everyone to do what they can to raise support or awareness this Movember. This year has been tough for everyone, but it has also proven that a little bit of help can go a long way, especially when we work together,” Goslett concludes.
