Mo's to Know This Movember

Press Release
Wednesday October 24, 2012

MO'S TO KNOW THIS MOVEMBER

Moustache month arrives in just a mere fortnight, and with time ticking away until titillating ‘tashes take over the country to raise awareness and crucial funds for the Cancer Society and Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand; Mo Bro Ambassadors have come out in their droves to support the 2012 campaign.

Movember New Zealand Country Manager, Robert Dunne says he’s thrilled to have some of the nation’s leading men supporting the cause this year. “Each year we aim to raise the profile and awareness of Movember and in 2012 we have some of the most inspiring Mo Bro’s on board,” says Robert.

“This Movember, we’re encouraging all Kiwi men to both seek and share knowledge and wisdom with loved ones, to learn their family health history and predispositions and to understand the risks they possibly face. These simple actions can have a significant impact of the quality and longevity of a man’s journey through his life.”

November is the best month of the year for defining the upper lip and top All Black lock Brodie Retallick is potentially the country’s tallest Mo - leading the charge as the first Ambassador in the line-up, ready to teach others in the ways of the Mo.

Joining the iconic All Black are other sporting heroes including former All Black and Crusader Aaron Mauger, Jared Hoeata from the Otago Highlanders, former New Zealand No.1 Surfing Champion Maz Quinn, extreme fisherman Matt Watson from the ITM Fishing Show and former Vodafone Warriors second-rower, now MaiFM Breakfast Host, Wairangi Koopu.

Also vying for top-lip appreciation is the outgoing Jay Reeve, afternoon host of ZM Radio and distinguished Willie Lose from Radio Live and Sky TV. The knowledgeable Jamie McKay from Radio Sport’s The Farming Show and Auckland DJ icon Murry Sweetpants from Ponsonby Radio complete the radio section of mo-ambassadors.

New Zealand television presenter Brendan Pongia and sports broadcasting legend John McBeth are also growing a mo in support of this fantastic cause alongside Celebrity Photographer Chris Sisarich and ‘Nothing Trivial’s Will Hall who will trim and fashion their top lips into bristling magnificence, helping to make 2012 the biggest Movember New Zealand has experienced yet.

Even this stellar line-up of amazing Mo Bro ambassadors admit they can’t do it alone, so this year they have support of Olympic size proportions! Olympic Gold Medalist Eric Murray, who arguably has New Zealand’s most famous blonde facial hair - will be supporting the Mo Bro’s with his top-tips on grooming, and advising Mo Bro’s on how to get the best of their Mo’s.

Celebrity chef Josh Emett will also be supporting Mo Bro’s through their dark and itchy days of growth, by giving tips on what to eat in order to get Mo’s looking sharp and also tips of what to eat for general well-being.

Rounding out the official support this year is two of New Zealand’s leading ladies who will lend their support as official Mo Sisters. Sports star and Sky TV presenter Melodie Robinson will be cheering on and inspiring Mo Bro’s throughout their Mo growth cycle, as will actress and TV Presenter Jo Holley. Both these Mo Sistas will be doing their best to raise the profile of this vital campaign and encourage you to do the same.

Participation is integral to Movember successfully continuing its journey and this is where we hope you will join in. Knowledge is power; the time to learn and grow is now.

Max Rashbrooke: Mozart’s The Magic Flute is an extraordinary tale, blending a story of great solemnity, of elegant music and Masonic virtue overcoming hatred and discord, with elements of extreme silliness and pure fantasy. .. More>>

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
