Outside the impact Men’s health has had on our lives, we whole heartedly support our beneficiary Movember because they address two key areas that we feel very strongly about: men’s illnesses and active living. Did you know:
- 1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
- In 2013, 26,500 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed in men and 4,000 will lose their battle
- Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in Canadian men between the ages of 15 and 29
- In 2013, more deaths will be attributed to physical inactivity (5.3 million) than smoking (5 million)
We believe that by working in conjunction with Movember and the organizations that they support, such as Prostate Cancer Canada, that we, along with our partners and sponsors, can have a significant impact on mitigating the prevalence men’s diseases such as prostate and testicular cancer, as well as inspire Canadians to lead more active outdoor lifestyles.
