Even the RACQ rescue chopper has a ‘mo’ this Movember

THE RACQ Capricorn Rescue Service helicopter is sporting a moustache for a good cause.

The chopper's moustache is all part of Movember, during which RACQ Capricorn Rescue is partnering with Resource Solutions to create the flying billboard.

They aim to raise money and awareness for men's health, targeting prostate cancer and male mental health.

Throughout November it's estimated that the moustached rescue chopper will cover about 4000 nautical miles throughout Central Queensland raising awareness and showing support.

The community is being asked to dig deep for RACQ Capricorn Rescue and support Movember by making at donation at mobro.co/rescue300.
