This November, the crew over at Stomping Ground Brewing Co are raising awareness and funds for Movember to show that it’s no longer just about men growing moustaches…It’s time to allow all men and women to show their support this November… by raising a glass of beer (or two) and having a bit of fun!
The Movember Foundation is the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale, year round. By 2030, they will reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%. The Foundation funds game-changing men’s health projects. Millions have joined the movement, funding over 1,200 projects focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. In addition, their awareness and education program is encouraging men to become more aware of their health, to talk about the big stuff in life, and take action when health issues arise. Our fathers, partners, brothers and friends face a health crisis that isn’t being talked about. We can’t afford to stay silent. The Movember Foundation have one goal: to stop men dying too young.
And the teams at Stomping Ground and the Movember Foundation are making it easy for you to help.
This November, every time you enjoy a Stomping Ground ‘Gipps St’ Pale Ale at supporting pubs and bars around Australia (like Nola on Vardon Ave) or purchase a keg yourself, venues and beer drinkers will be helping The Movember Foundation to raise funds, raise awareness about men’s health and hopefully encourage a few important conversations.
Charlotte Webb, CFDO of the Movember Foundation said too many men were ‘toughing it out’, keeping their feelings to themselves and struggling alone with their issues. “We know from research that men’s social connections tend to drop off once they hit their 30s and we’re often not great at making or keeping mates. By partnering with our friends at Stomping Ground, we are looking to engage with men where they are, remind them that it’s good to spend time with their mates and help make change happen sooner, before it’s too late.”
To help with starting the conversation, Stomping Ground is developing promotional activities, with a party the main prize on offer for beer fans – you bring your mates, they’ll bring the good times!
