Bondi Beach grows a giant Mo !

This Tuesday morning, 23rd Movember, the Bondi Rescue Life Guards – famous icons of health and vitality in Sydney – will show their support for the betterment of men’s health by helping to build a giant sandcastle Mo, or Mo-Castle, at iconic Bondi Beach. 

This will be the creation of award winning sand sculptor Jino van Bruinessen (one of only 5 sand sculptors operating in Australia), who will be joined by Bondi Rescue Lifeguards Hoppo and Kerbox, Movember Mo Sista ambassadors Amanda Hinchcliffe and Kate Hurst, and Movember spokesperson Rob Treharne.

The massive Mo-Castle will be a celebration of, and nod to, the vast numbers of Mo’s being worn proudly on the lips of men around the country, and globe. And what better place to do it than Bondi – internationally famous for healthy living, sand, and the outdoors.

This week Movember hit their millionth registration and remain on course to beat all previous donations and registration records. With NSW numbers at over 37,000 registrations and over a third of all money raised so far (over 3 million dollars) we hope this will be all the encouragement Sydney-siders need to keep up the good fight for the remainder of the month.
