This year Maurice Blackburn Lawyers are once again throwing the firm’s support behind Movember in an effort to promote men’s mental and physical health.
These efforts include Maurice BlackburnRockhampton Lawyer Paul Zapata participating for a second year in the month-long challenge to grow a moustache, with Paul seeking to raise much needed funds and awareness for men’s mental health, prostrate and testicular cancer.
“Men’s health is a really important issue, but often we’re not very good at talking about our health or being proactive in raising awareness of conditions that can have a significant impact not just on our own health but on the people around us,” Mr Zapata said.
“By helping to give men a voice through awareness campaigns such as Movember we can seek to change the face of men’s health.
“Mental health and men’s cancers are very real issues facing men these days and if it means growing a moustache to gain greater awareness and funding then I will happily put down my razor for this great cause,” he said.
