“Movember to Remember | Walk/Run-a-thon”

Digicel celebrated the end of its “Movember to Remember” campaign promoting Men’s Health Awareness by hosting the Inaugural Movember Walk/Run-A-Thon at the Digicel square. The event marked the end of Movember with participants raising funds by growing their moustache and running or walking 5KM. Participants were treated to a Zumba class, breakfast and the finest barber in Tonga to shave their moustaches.

Every dollar raised at the fundraising event would be matched by Digicel and donated to the Ministry of Health for investment in prostate cancer and Men’s health initiatives.

Former All Black Dan Carter gets growing with Movember

But the former All Blacks star was facing one of his toughest challenges this month - growing a moustache to raise awareness about mental health.

"I can't grow a strong mo' (moustache)," Carter, who normally only has to shave about twice a week, said on Thursday.

"I have done bits and pieces over the years but never committed to growing one for a month.

"It's been just over a week and it's pathetic really."
