IE Men’s Rugby did Mo’vember

[1]To open a series of events organized by the IE Rugby team in tandem with the Charity club and the Student Leadership Team to raise profits and awareness towards the Movember Foundation, IE hosted an exhibition match facing off with London Business School. The match was only the catalyst for a wonderful weekend filled with social gatherings, networking events and school spirit.
For those who are unaware, the Movember foundation strives to increase support and reduce stigma surrounding men’s mental health issues, as well as increase awareness for male-specific illnesses (namely testicular and prostate cancers). The IE rugby team takes men’s health very seriously, and we greatly appreciate all the collective efforts made both on and off campus to raise awareness for this great cause.
The weekend of festivities saw the two teams come together following the match and proceed in a traditional “Tercer Tiempo” where songs were sang and friends were made. The IE rugby team then hosted a Movember event at Boom Room where all the proceeds went directly to the Movember Foundation. In total all our efforts raised over 2000 euros for the foundation.
I would like to take a moment to thank all the Mo Bros and Mo Sistas for their donations! Additionally, I would like to thank the various coordinators and the LBS Rugby team for making this weekend such a success.
