Nulon Racing has today unveiled an exciting new Bathurst 1000 livery for its #23 entry in support of this year’s Movember campaign.
The #23 Movember Racing Team Camaro will carry key messages from the global men’s health movement, which this year is asking supporters to ‘answer the call of the Mo’ and unite to take on mental health and suicide, prostate cancer, and testicular cancer.
With messages such as ‘The Mo is calling’ and ‘Raise Funds. Save Lives.’ emblazoned across its panels, the #23 Movember Racing Team Camaro driven by, Tim Slade & Jonathon Webb is sure to inspire.
“Movember is such an important cause, and I am very proud to be able to play a part in raising awareness and vital funds for the campaign as the driver of the #23 Movember Racing Team Camaro.” Slade said.
“What I really like about Movember too is that while it champions men’s health, it does so in a way that’s really inclusive. Movember is not just for men, it’s a global health movement and the invitation to take part is open to everyone.”
Those looking to answer the call can do so in a number of ways:
- GROW A MO: Because even the worst moustaches start the best conversations.
- MOVE FOR MENTAL HEALTH: Run or walk 60km for the 60 men we lose to suicide every minute, every hour of every day, across the globe.
- HOST A MO-MENT: Throw an event to raise funds for men’s health and surrender to having a good time.
- MO YOUR OWN WAY: Do dares. Climb mountains. Chase personal bests. Quit social media or choose your own challenge. Change the face of men’s health – on your terms.
“I am putting the call out to all of Nulon Racing’s fans to get behind this great cause with us. There are heaps of great ways to get involved, whether you choose to Grow a Mo, Move for Mental Health, host a Mo-ment, or Mo Your Own Way, the opportunities are endless. It’s about having fun and doing some good for men’s health,” Slade added.
Natalie Kirby, Head of Marketing Campaigns at Movember Australia, said they were greatly looking forward to seeing Movember flying around Mount Panorama this weekend.
“To have Nulon Racing’s support in spreading this hairy word at one of the largest and most exciting sporting events on the calendar, is something we are thrilled about, and we cannot wait to see The Mo taking to the track this weekend,” Kirby said.
“Too many men are living with poor health or dying too young. In Australia, men are dying on average four years earlier than women – and for largely preventable reasons.
“Three in four suicides are men, 1 in 5 men are at risk of receiving a prostate cancer diagnosis in their lifetime1, and testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young men.
“And that is what Movember wants to change. ‘We are the leaders of the men’s health movement, and we are here to challenge health systems, confront gender norms, and encourage men to adopt healthy behaviours to save more lives ultimately. By improving men’s health, we know we can create generational change and healthier societies.”
Since 2003, Movember has built a global men’s health movement. Raising vital funds, sparking important conversations, and shattering the silence surrounding men’s health issues. They have funded more than 1,300 projects around the world, shaking up men’s health research and transforming the way health services reach and support men. As a global health movement that can truly engage men like no one else, Movember is uniquely positioned to lead the charge, and there is no better place to do that than the Bathurst 1000, with the help of Nulon Racing.”
