Movember has drawn to a close, and with the help of more than 60 of the game’s finest players, the AFL Players’ Official Movember network has raised more than $35,000 for men’s health.

If you haven’t donated yet, it’s not too late!

Club captains, rising stars and greats of the game – both past and present – teamed up to raise money and awareness by changing the face of men’s health throughout November, with the likes of 2014 MVP Nat Fyfe, Brisbane club champion Tom Rockliff, Fremantle skipper Matthew Pavlich, and spearheads Jay Schulz and Drew Petrie all taking part.

It’s been plenty of fun following the players’ “mogress” on social media throughout November, and their updates have ensured that the topic of men’s health has continued to be one of the biggest talking points of the month.

From a fundraising perspective, the efforts of the Richmond players – who came together to support teammate Shaun Hampson, whose father passed away from testicular cancer earlier this year – saw their team finish atop the AFL Players’ Movember leaderboard, with the Vic Mo’s and the Legends team rounding out the podium.
