Sélection Retraite and brand ambassador Michel Forget unite to support the Movember Canada movement10 November 2020
Laval, November 3rd, 2020 – Selection Group, along with brand ambassador Michel Forget, is proud to announce the launch of a fundraising project in its Sélection Retraite complexes that will support research initiatives into men’s health.
Sélection Retraite will collect donations during the entire month of November on behalf of Movember Canada, which has been supporting men’s health projects since 2003, in fields ranging from prostate and testicular cancer, to mental health and suicide prevention.
Selection Group has agreed to match individual contributions up to $5,000, with the ultimate goal being to donate $10,000 to Movember Canada.
Sélection Retraite will be distributing content on its social media platforms featuring Michel Forget and his trademark mustache, which recalls the mustache in the Movember movement’s logo, throughout the month of November. The goal is to invite the community at large to contribute to the cause.
“Health and well-being are at the core of Sélection Retraite’s commitment. They are what enable our communities to flourish and our retirees to enjoy long, fulfilling retirements. We are proud to unite with Movember Canada to support men’s health initiatives and research. We are also pleased to have brand ambassador Michel Forget and his legendary mustache helping out.”
– Éric Vincent, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Selection Group
“Physical activity, good nutrition and a vibrant social life are key elements to living a fulfilling and healthy retirement. Talking about men’s health is a taboo that must be broken. This initiative highlights Sélection Retraite’s commitment to getting involved in the community and being a leader in striving for better health. I am thrilled to join this campaign that will help men to live healthier and longer.”
– Michel Forget, Ambassador, Sélection Retraite
