Shawn Nelson Hosting an event for Movember

$400

Target: $3,500
Shawn has raised $4,087 since 2017.
My motivation
Fundraising for cause areas including:
Men's health
Mental health and suicide prevention

This year, I am running the 2020 TCS New York Marathon with the Movember Foundation. I will be hitting the streets like diet Prefontaine, 0% of the speed, 100% of the full bodied 'stache, for the next 6 months in preparation.

The Movember foundation has an easily articulated and addressable goal. It is something that I find, every time I discuss with anyone why I have a beautiful, bountiful, bodacious lip sweater, it resonates. I have found that the Movember foundation is addressing issues that few people speak about. The vast majority of people I speak to either knows someone, or has lost someone, who has been affected by prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health, or they are currently battling with it. I am no stranger to mental health struggles and I believe through the foundation I have found a channel to be able to speak freely about the stigma surrounding men’s mental health. My fundraising mantra has always been “It’s okay for men not to be ok” and that is a saying that I proudly live by.

Globally, the rate of suicide is alarmingly high, particularly in men. Too many men are ‘toughing it out’, keeping their feelings to themselves and struggling in silence. The Movember Foundation is aiming to reduce the rate of male suicide by 25% by 2030, and I want to help them get there. Help me stop men dying too young.
