You might wonder why Bradley Brown would willingly decide to push a lawn mower across the Wyndham Vale South Reserve for 24 hours.

On November 16, he will attempt to break the record for the furthest distance pushing a lawn mower, currently 107.5 kilometres to raise money for Movember.

“I knew nothing about Movember, it stemmed from a few conversations we had around the table at work,” Mr Brown said.

Every year in November, people are encouraged to raise awareness about issues affecting men, including mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.

Mr Brown said he’s raised over $93,000 in the 10 years he’s been advocating for the Movember Foundation.

Residents can support Mr Brown by cheering him on at the reserve from when he begins at 8am, or purchasing from the food trucks who will donate all their profits to the foundation.
