Mossman’s “mo” hero
A 15-year-old Mossman boy has sprinted into action to raise money for men’s health, aiming to run 120km and grow a moustache during the month of November.
Luka Govorko was inspired by a friend who ran a marathon every single day of November for the campaign last year.
Although challenging, Luka is determined to keep hitting his goals and raise awareness for the black dog in many men’s lives.
“Men’s health is an issue that is often silent and there needs to be more awareness on it,” he said.
“I get up and do 4km runs every day that goes towards the 120km goal to make up for the 60 men we lose every hour to suicide.
“Some days I find it really challenging, but you’ve just got to get up and do it.”
Within a week, Luka managed to raise over $600 and has now set his fundraising goal to $1000.
