TORONTO, Oct. 4, 2017 /CNW/ - The Movember Foundation, the only global charity focused solely on men's health, is announcing their line-up of corporate partners for Movember 2017. The annual Movember campaign is globally recognized for its fun, disruptive approach to fundraising and getting men to take action for their health. This year, 8 corporate partners will also join Movember in celebrating their 10-year fundraising anniversary in Canada and ultimately help the Foundation have an everlasting impact on the face of men's health.
Corporate partners increase visibility of the causes supported by the Movember Foundation, raise critical funds through internal participation and marketing efforts, and create remarkable experiences for the Movember community. Now in its 10th year of fundraising in Canada, the Movember Foundation has raised more than $839 million and funded more than 1,200 world-class men's health projects in 21 countries for prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.
"Our corporate partners play a crucial role in our campaign, helping us speak to key audiences to drive awareness and raise funds for men's health," says Ken Aucoin, Canadian Country Director at the Movember Foundation. "We are honoured to have these organizations support us for our 10-year anniversary in Canada and be the difference during our 2017 campaign."
