On the back of an award winning fundraising effort for Movember 2012, CQUniversity have partnered with KickStartCQ in the hope to smash last year’s donation of $15,475 to the Movember Foundation. Nineteen CQUniversity staff have signed up to let their moustaches loose during Movember to help raise vital funds and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer, as well as mental health.
Donations for the CQUniversity team have been flowing in since the start of Movember and the community are encouraged to continue supporting these ‘Mo Bros’ with donations of any amount, it all helps! Donations can be made by visiting the team page.
To assist with fundraising efforts, KickStartCQ along with CrossFit CQ and Mass Nutrition have organised the Movember 2013 CrossFit Challenge. This community event will be held at the CQUniversity Gym and will see teams 4 compete in three CrossFit workouts across three divisions (Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced) ensuring that participants of any ability can get involved. At this stage it is expected that a total of 30 teams will battle it out in support of the CQUniversity Movember team.
As well as offering a great chance to support the Movember Foundation the Movember 2013 CrossFit Challenge will draw members of local CrossFit affiliates together, while providing opportunity for members of the public to try it out for the first time. Spectators and supporters are encouraged to come along and get involved in all that will be happening throughout the day. Briefing for competitors will begin at 7:00am with the final workout planned to finish at approximately 3:30pm so make sure you come and check out the action and support all the ‘Mo Bros’ and ‘Mo Sistas’ that are participating.
All money raised from this event will be contributed directly to the CQUniversity Movember team. Your help is needed to make sure they can build on the phenomenal amount raised last year.
