For the past month, Movember has been a focus for several of the Hydrix team, and for the remainder of us who have supported and sponsored them on their journey. And while we’ve been exposed to the world of competitive moustache growing, we’ve also heard more sobering stories of (surviving) cancer, the value of starting conversations, and the power of sharing stories and experiences.
Conceived thirteen years ago, Movember is still a cause that remains relevant. For the Hydrix team, it has provided us with the impetus to initiate more discussions around men’s health, cancer, depression and suicide. Men remain notoriously poor when it comes to talking about their health concerns, and many die too young as a result. This month’s discussions have been powerful in awareness-raising, and neatly supportive of our corporate vision of enhancing one billion lives.
So, thank you to Julian, Mark & Mark, Ben and Dee, and Sean in our Adelaide office (not pictured), for raising funds, raising awareness, and their commitment to promoting a great and hairy cause.
