The Minister for Indigenous Health, Warren Snowdon, has had no choice but to shave off his trademark moustache after Queensland's peak Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health body raised $10,000 for Movember.
Last month Mr Snowdon accepted a challenge from the Queensland Aboriginal and Islander Health Council (QAIHC), to face the razor if their team produced $10,000 in donations.
Called IUIH MoBros, the team featured sports stars Steve Renouf and Ian Lacey, and QAIHC's CEO Selwyn Button.
'While I foolishly took on this group, and I'll lose my whiskers, I'm pleased that $10,110 had been raised to help lift the profile of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander male health,' Mr Snowdon said.
