It is all about family at the end of the day. Lets stop men dying too young.

Written by Media Manager.

Lets not get all negative Nancy about this topic but at the heart of the matter is the wee fact that Kiwi Men generally are really really terrible at getting to the doctor and getting checked up.
These days we are all too busy.
A few generations ago it was because "she'll be right mate". There is always an excuse. 

This MOVEMBER we are wanting to make a change as much as we can in our small way, by having a conversation as much as possible about why we are doing MOVEMBER as an organisation, but also as individuals. For some it is about mates, for others their parents, and for others like David from the Media Dept it's all about the kids. In a rare move David steps infront of the camera to vtalk about what is important to him. 

Another video at the end of Movember Foundation New Zealand for the month and this time a message from the media team about the importance of taking responsibility & getting checks done. It's all for family at the end of the day. #bowaters #movember #family
