Law 365 gets moving for Movember

Featured Image

This November, Law 365 committed to Movember’s campaign called “Make a Move” – accepting the challenge to improve our fitness by walking or running 60km over November.

Only 2km a day? We knew we could smash that! 

Why 60km? 

It's 60km for the 60 men that are lost to suicide each hour, every hour across the world. A truly shocking statistic that Movember is trying to address by raising awareness and funds. 

Movember has done so much to change the face of men’s health – and not just with magnificent moustaches! Initially the charity’s mission was to raise awareness about testicular and prostate cancer, but over the years they’ve taken on other issues that threaten men’s health – such as the high rate of suicide and a sedentary lifestyle (one of the most dangerous factors facing men’s health today). 

Raising awareness 

Law 365 invited the inspirational #MoBro Ben Bowers to share his story with the team. Ben told us his personal story about surviving testicular cancer. He discussed men's mental health and the emphasis on MOVING in Movember to combat the dangers of a sedentary lifestyle.  What were our key takeaways? 
1. Guys - it is so important to talk to each other! 90% of men say they would be there for their friends, but only 50% think their mates wouldn't want to hear what they have to say. You can close that gap by encouraging each other to keep talking honestly. Ask, "How are you?" Then ask again... and you might get a different answer the second time! 
2. Look after your physical health. Move. Do the things that you know are good for you, check yourself, and don't neglect early signs something may be wrong. See a doctor.  

Raising money for an important cause  

Team Law 365 walked or ran 370 kilometres and raised £1,625 (so far!?) -- others got on their bike. Elliot cycled 121.28 miles in two days, and 370km were biked in total.
