Wakefield's HD PHYSICAL THERAPY Celebrates Their 4th Movember
HDPT’s co-founding partners, Ed Harding, PTA and Glenn D’Addario, MSPT, DPT, along with staff members Sean Flaherty, PT, OCS, Svet Wilson, PTA, ATC, Robbie Barletta, PTA, Ryan Moore and Chris Foster are joining the cause for the 4th year in a row. The men began the month clean-shaven, and will be documenting their growth journey on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram and on their own HDPT blog.
Why is Movember so important? One of the biggest obstacles men tackle in regards to their health is a reluctance to discuss issues they face either with their partner, family or doctor. Movember was born from the understanding that a fun and engaging initiative could help encourage men to become more actively involved in their own health. Movember aims to increase awareness and support for men's health by getting conversations started, at a grassroots level, educating men about the health risks they face, and raising vital funds for support programs.
“This moustache continues to be an iconic way to encourage dialogue about men’s health issues,” said HDPT president & co-founder Glenn R. D’Addario, MSPT, DPT. “We are excited to have our moustaches be the catalyst for these conversations and help generate funds that will deliver breakthrough research and support services allowing men to live longer, healthier, happier lives.”
Since 2003, millions have joined the Movember Foundation’s men’s health movement, raising more than $650 million and funding over 1,000 programs through impact investments, focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.
