Rob Moyle's beloved 'Mo' of more than 30 years will be coming off providing at least $1000 is raised.
Kyabram resident Rob Moyle’s ‘‘beloved mo’’ will be no more providing he can raise at least $1000.
While others are growing their facial hair for a good cause during Movember, Mr Moyle intends to shave his off.
‘‘The mo has been a permanent fixture for 30-plus years,’’ he said.
‘‘Our two children have never seen their father without it and if we can raise enough, the hair will come off as well, and thats not a pretty sight according to the wife.
‘‘I have set myself a personal goal of raising $1000 for the mo to go, so far I’ve got about $630, but if we can muster up somewhere close to $2000, the hair can go as well.’’
Mr Moyle said his motivation was simple.
‘‘To help further the research and development programs already happening with prostate cancer and to raise the importance for men of my vintage to have the all important check up,’’ he said.
‘‘I have recently had the tests done, including a biopsy, and am in the clear at the moment, but I was not at all aware my PSA levels were on the high side as I had no reason to believe that there could have been something wrong with my prostate.’’
In 2002, Mr Moyle participated in the Shave for a Cure and had his head shaved to raise funds for the Leukaemia Foundation.
‘‘Kyabram has a great community spirit and even with the set back recently, I am confident with the support and camaraderie from this community, this target can be achieved,’’ Mr Moyle said.
