UberKinky Gets Moving in Aid of Movember
This entry was posted on October 31, 2016.
This year I am taking part in the company effort to raise money for the Movember Foundation. Joining forces with the aptly named 'Team Tashticles', we've each taken on a different challenge to help raise money for this excellent charity. My Move Challenge is a personal challenge which I've been thinking about for quite some time so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to push myself in the name of raising awareness and funds for prostate cancer and testicular cancer research as well as mental health and suicide prevention. My fellow teammates include the hard workers involved with our sister sites so I'm here to show them what UberKinky and myself are made of.
UberKinky is serious about everyone's health. BDSM when done properly can be enjoyed as a healthy part of anybody's sexuality. It invigorates the mind and the imagination - some will go as far to say the rush of adrenaline or the floaty feeling of sub-space is better than any drug on (or off) the market. Sure we like to shout about the health benefits of a good prostate massage but we know it's also important to support those who are already struggling with prostate issues as well. It's concerning that the rate of testicular cancer has doubled in the last 50 years and that three quarters of suicides every year are men.
The Movember Foundation was created to address this crisis head on to help support our friends, brothers, sons, uncles, nephews and fathers. Their goal is to find a cure for prostate and testicular cancer and raise awareness of men's mental health to help prevent suicides. Let's help reduce the number of men dying prematurely.
To help raise money for this fantastic charity, I will be pushing my limits to surpass my lifetime personal best barbell squat lift. Not many of you will know but at one point I was an avid weight lifter. I had quite a routine going and I never skipped leg day! I've pushed myself too far a few times and had to let it go but I always ended up back in the gym sooner or later.
Early 2015 I sustained a severe injury to my ankle where I had a substantial rip in my Achilles tendon; I was off my feet for over a week and I hobbled with a walking stick for a couple of months. Sadly, no one wanted to see my new cane. This was of course followed up with months of physical therapy and I was not allowed to do anything athletic. Now that it's late 2016 I've regained proper movement in my ankle again and have been itching to get back into weight lifting. With this year's Movember Challenge I feel compelled to try and beat my lifetime personal best of 55kg for the barbell squat. I have one month to meet this goal so if you'd like to help cheer me on please donate what you can via my donation page found here.
You can follow my journey through my Movember page where I will provide constant updates and photos. Please keep checking back to cheer me on and to donate to a worthy cause. Be sure to look out for me on the twitter hashtag #ladieswholift.
