Kent Cobras Bantam AA Raise Awareness for Men’s Health
Submitted By Martin Steele on Tuesday, December 05, 2017
Over the month of November the Kent Cobra Major Bantam AA team was raising funds and awareness for Men’s Health for the Movember Foundation. The team set a target to raise $800, and far exceeded this by raising $1310 for this worthy cause.

The coaches wanted to help educate and raise the awareness in their young players. Across the world, men die an average six years younger than women, and for reasons that are largely preventable. It doesn’t have to be that way: we can all take action to live healthier, happier and longer lives.

 

Not only were the players able to inspire donations, they were able to help educate others on the importance of men’s health, raise awareness, conversations and lead change.
