Bupa employees across the UK rally together to improve men’s health

Summary

Bake sales, waxing, burpees and paddle-boarding were just some of the activities that took place at Bupa offices across the UK to raise awareness and funds for better men’s health.

Throughout November, Bupa employees up and down the country rallied together to raise funds for men’s health charities and raise awareness of issues, including prostate and testicular cancer, and mental health.

Activities ranged from hosting quizzes and bake sales to a burpee challenge and colleagues in Manchester taking on an open water paddle board challenge, as well as a number of male employees ditching the razor for the month to grow a ‘Mo’. Some of Bupa’s ‘Mo Bros’ also shared their motivation for taking up the Movember challenge, including Tim Hipgrave, Josh Stedman, James Harley, and prostate cancer survivor Jon Savage.

Jon, who is also Bupa’s Movember team captain, said: “I was delighted with the willingness of my colleagues, co-workers and CEO to get behind Movember and activities to raise awareness of men’s health issues. We had a great time organising and taking part in all of the activities. I’m looking to raising even more funds and awareness next year for this important cause.”

The fundraising efforts along with Bupa’s match funding raised more than £10,000 for Movember and Prostate Cancer UK.
