Mathews raising awareness and funds for Men’s Health this Movember

Wednesday, 14 November 2018

Victorian Institute of Sport’s Luke Mathews is proudly participating in the Movember Foundation’s annual Movember campaign, which challenges men to grow a moustache, men and women to get physically active and Move, or host a fundraising event – all of which spark conversations and raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health.

The VIS 800m Commonwealth Games bronze medalist says that his motivation is to raise funds and awareness this Movember for all the dads, brothers, sons and mates in our lives.

“We’ve all been exposed at one point in time to mental health, so that’s why it’s best that we raise funds and awareness for this foundation.” Mathews said.

The Movember Foundation is the only global charity focused solely on men’s health. Men and women can be the difference this Movember by donating or raising critical funds for men’s health by signing up at, and choosing to Grow, Move or Host.

Men start Movember 1st clean-shaven and grow only a moustache for the month, or men and women can commit to get active and take the Move Challenge or can host an event. Participants get friends, family, or colleagues to donate to their efforts to change the face of men’s health.  

The Movember Foundation has one goal: to stop men dying too young. As the only global charity tackling men’s health issues year-round, the foundation supports the following causes: prostate cancer, testicular cancer,mental health, and suicide prevention. Since 2003, the support of more than 5 million men and women has funded over 1,200 innovative projects across more than 20 countries. To donate or learn more, please visit
