Movember 201930 Nov 2019
In 2019, the HKFC Rugby Section once again participated in Movember - the annual event where throughout November a band of perfectly ordinary men take on the brave task of growing a moustache for charity in a bid to raise awareness and funds for health issues facing men.
For those who may not know, Movember is a charity movement raising awareness and vital funds for the biggest issues in men’s health: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention. It aims to change the face of men’s health, to encourage everyone to talk about the important stuff and to have a good time while they’re at it.
The section closed out this year’s Movemeber campaign with a shave off on Family and Sponsors Day to celebrate the hard work and dedication of the players who grew their glorious moustache. It was a huge effort from the players involved and we are proud to say the team was able to raise over HK$43,000! We want to give a massive thank you to each of the players for staying strong and spreading the word to friends and family to pledge their support.
The HKFC Rugby section is extremely appreciative of the effort and enthusiasm from all the members, sponsors, family and friends that made this Movember a success.
We’ll see you next year. Mo on!
