Physical Challenge for Men’s Health Week

This year, the theme of Men’s Health Week 2022 was Building Healthy Environments for Men and Boys – focusing on creating physically, mentally and emotionally healthy environments in the home, workplace and in social settings.

To create awareness and acknowledge Men’s Health Week, the Diversity and Inclusion Committee put on a Physical Challenge for all staff. This Physical Challege involved doing either a plank or wall sit to raise money for Bowel Cancer Australia. If a plank or wall sit was held for 1 minute, the company agreed to donate $20 to Bowel Cancer Australia. If a staff member held for 2 minutes, $40 was agreed to be donated from the company to Bowel Cancer Australia.

It was a great effort by all, with $970.00 being raised for Bowel Cancer Australia.  Many of the staff that participated were able to hold a plank for two minutes, which was very impressive!!

After the challenge, a healthy lunch was provided and enjoyed by all with fresh sandwiches and an assortment of fruit, to promote healthy eating and awareness around obesity.
