KYABRAM Men’s Longest Lunch has donated $15,000 to Kyabram District Health Service at a presentation at the Kyabram Club.
This is the second year the event has been a contributor to men’s health awareness and promotion.
KDHS chief executive Peter Abraham said the money donated as a result of the event would be used to develop a dedicated men’s health program.
‘‘We will use the money to work with various groups and agencies to help target chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and obesity,’’ Mr Abraham said.
‘‘It will target as many men as possible and it will aim to have them take a much more proactive approach to the better management of their health and wellbeing,’’ he said.
‘‘Everyone at KDHS is extremely thankful of the long lunch committee and the work its members do.
‘‘They have put in tireless hours to earn this money and we look forward to using it just as effectively to improve men’s health in our region.’’
