Western United vice-captain Josh Risdon is continuing his leadership off the football field, growing a Mo to save a Bro this Movember to raise awareness for men’s mental health.
Josh got rid of the trademark beard today to kick start his Movember campaign, where he hopes to raise $1,000 across the month and help remove the stigma around men’s mental health.
United’s star right-back has also drafted in teammate Ryan Scott to help the cause and stop men dying too young.
Movember began in 2003 and has funded more than 1,250 men’s health projects worldwide, with some seven million participants growing a moustache in that time.
Movember seeks to change the face of men’s health, raising valuable information and funds for a variety of men’s health areas including mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.
