Gold Coast Titans Back rower Keegan Hipgrave has finished off his second Movember campaign with a successful fundraising event raising just over $6,500 for men's health.
Hipgrave celebrated the end of the moustache-growing season with an event held at Wildernis Café & Bar in Palm Beach, raising a total of $4,823 on the night.
"We had a really great turn out and a bunch of the boys came, and we raised a fair bit of money which was good," said Hipgrave.
Keegan chose to take part in the moustache-growing season in hopes of raising funds and awareness for men's health.
"We had a good month just trying to raise awareness for Movember in general, especially the mental health aspect for myself and we had a really good time doing it. All the boys backed it too," said Hipgrave.
After successfully completing his second Movember, Hipgrave explains how easy it is to be part of raising awareness for men's health.
"It does mean a lot to me. It's easy to do, it's not hard. I've got such a good support network around us with the Titans and with Movember and everyone that helped us out so it's no sweat off my back.
"The three main aspects Movember covers is testicular cancer, prostate cancer and mental health. I'm a big advocate for Movember as I've said previously, and the mental health component really hits home to me.
"I've had a lot of mates that suffer from mental illness so that's what the month is all about. Just raising awareness and having a chat."
Starting the month with a clean shave at Tommy Gun's Barber Shop in Pacific Fair, both Hipgrave and Gold Coast Suns counterpart, Brayden Crossley, put their code differences aside for a good cause.
Hipgrave's Dad also chose to get amongst the action, auctioning off his moe for a good cause.
"His moustache went for the most - his moustache went for $800 on the night," said Hipgrave.
