VANCOUVER, Dec. 18, 2012 /CNW/ - With Movember drawn to an official
close, LGM Financial Services Inc. is pleased to announce that through
its Friends of LGM network, successfully mobilized the Canadian auto
industry to raise over $245,000 in support of men's health. The
"Friends of LGM - Canadian Auto Industry United" network was the
largest automotive Movember network in the world with 185 teams and
1,275 members. These remarkable results ranked the network 10th in
Canada, 22nd in the world in contributions. In total, Movember Canada
raised over $39 million dollars through this annual fundraising event.
"We created this network to allow the Canadian auto industry to have a
collective voice in the awareness of men's health issues," says LGM CEO
Adam Hill. "This was more than just an avenue to raise funds for
vital prostate cancer research; this was an opportunity for our
industry to come together and stand behind an issue that is important
to us all. We are very pleased with this achievement and realize this
wouldn't have been possible without the support of our industry
partners, automotive dealers and colleagues across Canada."
LGM thanks everyone for their participation and support of this
initiative, and includes a special recognition to their sponsors.
Westin Hotels & Resorts, Sovereign General Insurance Company, Canadian
Auto World, Elite Sportswear, Canadian Auto Dealer, Automotive Business
School of Canada, and RP Graphics Group were instrumental to the
campaign's success by generously donating time, materials and
Movember is a month long fundraising campaign where male participants,
known as Mo Bros, start the month of November with a clean-shaven face,
then grow their stylish moustache throughout the month. This hairy
ribbon is designed to start conversations about prostate cancer and
men's health issues. Women, or Mo Sistas, help by getting the word out,
recruiting Mo Bros to participate. Funds raised go towards research and
survivorship programs driven by Prostate Cancer Canada.
