MISSISSAUGA, ON, Oct. 24, 2016 /CNW/ - Ascensia Diabetes Care Canada Inc. ("Ascensia"), in partnership with professional hockey player Max Domi, today announced the launch of CONTOUR® NEXT's Powered by Accuracy 16 Reasons Contest. By entering, one lucky fan, and three friends, will have the ultimate opportunity to take support for both hockey and diabetes to the #nextlevel by having a chance to win a trip to see Max Domi as his team faces off against Edmonton in January 2017.
Through their ongoing partnership, Max and Ascensia are using this #nextlevel contest not only to celebrate Canadian hockey, but also to continue to educate all Canadians about diabetes. Max, who was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 12, hopes to use his personal experiences to inspire people to learn more about the disease, which affects more than 11 million Canadians.i
"When I was 13, I met hockey legend Bobby Clarke who also has diabetes," says Domi. "It was at that moment I knew that diabetes wouldn't get in my way. Through my partnership with Ascensia, I can use opportunities like this contest to continue to encourage people with diabetes to lead remarkable lives."
In fact, as homage to Clarke, Domi's jersey bears the #16. For a chance to win this #nextlevel experience, fans need to go to poweredbyaccuracy.ca and give 16 reasons why they deserve to win. The winner will receive a grand prize trip for four to Edmonton, Alberta to attend the January 16, 2017 game with Arizona playing Edmonton. The winner will also receive:
- Round trip travel for four people to Edmonton from anywhere in Canada
- One night accommodation for four people in Edmonton
- A meet and greet opportunity with Max Domi after the game
"At Ascensia our goal is to empower people living with diabetes and provide meaningful solutions," says Russ Newsome, Region Head of North America, Ascensia. "Max Domi isn't just remarkable on the ice, his commitment and passion for diabetes awareness is truly inspiring. We are thrilled to witness this through our partnership with him, and now his Canadian fans can too."
