CHANGING THE FACE OF MEN’S HEALTH
In November 2016 the Clough Executive Committee, led by CEO Peter Bennett, participated in Movember. People across Clough’s corporate offices and project sites took up the challenge to raise funds and awareness for some of the biggest health issues facing men: Prostate, Testicular Cancer and Mental Health.
Competitive rivalries were strong. The Clough Corporate Team, captained by Peter Bennett, and the Wheatstone Hook-up and Commissioning Team, captained by Project Manager Matt Taylor, engaged in a head-to-head battle to raise funds.
Personal rivalries were also fierce with staff members often facing the predicament of whose efforts they should support, with many making the safe career choice and backing the team as a whole. Some executives even stooped as low as learning how to use Snapchat filters to boost their chances of success.
Suffice to say, some ‘Mos’ developed at a greater pace than others, but by the end of the month none were deemed keepers. Much to the relief of wives, children and small animals across Perth, all ‘Mos’ were removed.
The Clough Mo Team raised a total of AUD$14 732, eclipsing the target set of AUD$12 000 and placing us 71st of all Movember teams in Australia.
The Movember Foundation is the only global charity focused solely on Men’s Health. Every November they conduct Movember, where men across the world take part by growing their ‘Mo’. Participants compete as either a ‘MoBro’ or ‘MoSis’, or through supporting fundraising efforts of the participants.
