Movember Sports

Its Movember and time to think about us men folk for a change.

The Movember Foundation, uk.movember.com, focuses on four main areas.

  • Prostate cancer.
  • Testicular cancer.
  • Poor mental health.
  • Physical inactivity.

The area that particularly interests us at Bridgeham is physical inactivity and the Movember Foundation’s challenge is MOVE (uk.movember.com/get-involved/move). This is a challenge to move everyday for the 30 days of November, plus raise sponsorship. Movember uses a good tag line which clearly explains the importance of moving and the detrimental effects that sitting can have on our health, ‘Sitting is the new smoking’.

The message is to MOVE as much as possible whether its involvement in a specific sport or everyday activities. Over the next thirty days we will provide suggestions.
