Movember
Media Releases 08 Nov 2018

Flight Centre Travel Group New Zealand is participating in Movember this year to raise awareness about some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide. The aim of Movember is to get all men to talk to one another about anything. 

We’re proud to have a strong FCM team growing their Mo’s this Movember.


Let’s introduce our FCM Movember team:

Why did you decide to participate in Movember this year?

Why am I doing Movember? It’s not to look cool, my daughter won’t come near me and give me a kiss but why I am doing it is because of

men’s health. There are a whole lot of things that come under men’s health, whether its men’s mental health, prostate cancer and other

issues. I’m just doing it for the bros, that’s why I’m growing a Mo.

Why did you decide to participate in Movember this year?

I’ve decided to do Movember this year because it’s a great cause, it’s all about prevention. It’s very preventable if you catch it early

and it’s very important for us blokes out there.

Why did you decide to participate in Movember this year?

I am doing the Move-ember in the hopes to bring awareness to youth suicide and in particular LGBT youth suicide, which has some

of the highest rates of suicide in the world. I move to bring awareness and I also move to fundraise for those organisations which aid

in the prevention of youth suicide.

Why did you decide to participate in Movember this year?

I decided to be part of Movember because I wanted to be a symbol for everyone walking around, when they see my Mo I want them

to be reminded that there is someone there they can speak to about their mental illnesses, about anything that they are going through

because we are not in this alone and it’s a beautiful journey. So please, speak out if there’s anything on your mind and I’m here to help.

Mo-on!
