TransACT Rocks Movember team

MR SESELJA (Molonglo—Leader of the Opposition) (5.01): I ran out of time last year to pay tribute to some of the great work that was done by the TransACT Rocks Movember team in raising money as part of Movember. I did mention one of the fundraisers that I attended a while ago and paid tribute to some of the people. The final results were in later last year and I just wanted to get on record that the TransACT Rocks Movember team raised the highest total of anyone in the world, a total of $134,000. This was the highest amount raised world wide by a team of 10 or under, which is an extraordinary effort. So I would like to pay tribute to every one of them.

I also acknowledge RiotACT, which I am getting a couple of quotes from. TransACT CEO Ivan Slavich, who was the team captain, was responsible for raising $65,000 of the team's final tally, making his apparently first-ever mo the highest earning hairy lip in the world. And it was a bad mo. I will put that on the record. I will quote from what Ivan Slavich had to say:

This incredible result really demonstrates the generosity of Canberra people and its business sector. Thanks to their support, our generous sponsors, the commitment of the team and TransACT staff, we have been able to raise significant funds for the Movember cause and done much to increase awareness of men's health issues.
