Movember is an incredibly important cause. Aside from joining (or watching) the people around you spend a month growing hilarious looking moustaches, the month is spent raising money and awareness for Men's health.
Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australian men. Testicular cancer is the second most common cancer affecting men aged 18 to 39, and three out of four suicides in Australia are men. This needs to change, and once again Ticketmaster joined the fight to make sure it does.
Last year, Ticketmaster raised over $7,300, but in 2018 they were aiming to do better. Ticketmaster Australia and Ticketmaster United Kingdom went head to head in the Battle of the Mo. In total, 28 team members got involved – with 19 of them spread across Australia and New Zealand. They pledged to spend November either growing a moustache or committing to walk or run 60 kilometres in the month.
In total Ticketmaster Australia and New Zealand raised $6,092, with the UK team raising £1,657 ($2934), for an incredible total of $10,184 – a remarkable effort for a truly worthy cause.
To top it all off, Ticketmaster Australia ended our Movember campaign with a morning tea for all staff to enjoy. Awards were given out, cake was shared, and another great Movember campaign was wrapped up.
Thank you to everyone involved, we'll see you again next year.
