Auckland Cricket team up with Movember

Auckland Cricket team up with Movember
Tuesday 10 December, 2019

The moustaches may have gone, but the motivation remains.

Movember has expanded from being a month-long initiative during November to a year-round movement tackling men's health and Auckland Cricket is proud to have again joined forces with Movember to launch this summer's Dream11 Super Smash.

The Auckland ACES kick off their Dream11 Super Smash campaign against the Otago Volts on December 14 and Movember will be at Eden Park Outer Oval to raise awareness about tackling Prostate Cancer, Testicular Cancer, Mental Health and Suicide Prevention.

Robert Dunne, NZ Country Manager for Movember is excited to be working with Auckland Cricket again.

"The players have been fantastic supporters for many seasons, growing moustaches and raising funds."

"At Movember, we understand the important role sport and community has to play when it comes to men’s health and our partnership with Auckland Cricket allows us to promote that key message."

Movember promotes open discussion about men's health and Dunne sees this Saturday at the Outer Oval as a great opportunity to continue the conversation.

"We are excited to see as many Mo Bros as possible at the ACES' first Dream11 Super Smash game because spending quality time with friends is important and this partnership provides us with the opportunity to promote this.”

Auckland Cricket Chief Executive Iain Laxon knows how important the many Movember causes are to cricketers and the wider community.

“The team at Movember do incredible work each year to promote awareness around men’s health."

"We saw our opening Dream11 Super Smash match as an opportunity to reach out to a wider group and focus on the bigger issues within our society."

"It is all about bringing families together at the Outer Oval and creating a lasting positive impact during their experience.”
