Schuylkill River Rugby Tackling Men's Health Issues
Schuylkill River Rugby has signed up to participate in Movember which is an annual event involving the growing of mustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men’s suicide. Our Mo-Team Captain Matt McKnight is leading the way for us in supporting this cause. McKnight is particularly interested in helping to lower the rate of male suicide and states that 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 we want to help them get there. If you’d like to help us stop men dying too young please join or donate to our team here (https://moteam.co/schuylkill-river-rfc?mc=1).
