Following the week-long promotion of ‘This Girl Can’, there was due to be a Mo-sista sporting event on Sunday 20 November. This event has however been postponed until 3 December. This was due to there not being enough teams recruited beforehand, partially due to the AU President Jim Balshaw being absent on holiday and therefore failing to plan it in time.
However, this new date allows time for more AU clubs and societies to get involved, with further publicity about the event likely to circulate around. Consequently, there is now an aim to get 10-12 teams involved. The idea of Mo-sista originated from women also wanting to be able to help fundraise money during ‘Movember’. In Exeter’s case, the project is holding a varsity where teams can compete in a competitive yet friendly atmosphere.
The event is taking place from 9-4pm at the Sports Park, with freebies and prizes to be won all day. All proceeds will go towards Movember, with the suggested donation being £5 per person.
