Thomas Windsor

Advocate for men's health

TAS State recipient Local Hero 2020

Thomas Windsor is dedicated to raising awareness and funds for major health issues affecting men, including depression and prostate cancer. He has spent over a decade fundraising for men's health organisations, by getting his friends together to compete in running events, including a gruelling half-marathon 1,300 metres up Mt Wellington.

After losing his father to suicide when he was 23, Tom turned a family tragedy into a commitment to help other men. He founded Mobart Mo Bros, which has grown every year to become Australia's top Movember fundraising team for the past four years. Started as a way for his friends to show support after the loss of his father, the team of men and women are on a mission to stop so many men from dying too young.

The Mobart Mo Bros hold a range of events to engage the community – successfully attracting more than 600 registered participants and raising over $750,000 for Movember in the past 13 years.
