#WhyWeMo – we want to make a difference and change the face of men’s health. #TeamYoungs believes that we truly can make a difference by spreading awareness. Together we will stop men from dying too young. Join us in supporting #Movember this November!
What is Movember?
The Movember Foundation was established in 2003 and has since grown to be a global organization raising funds to better the lives of men. The Movember movement has since raised over $677 million and has supported over 1,000 programs focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity in men.
Our Movember Team | #TeamYoungs
Things start to get a little hairy in our offices during the month of November because the men “Mo Bros” toss their razors and grow a mustache in an effort to raise funds for Movember – and the women “Mo Sistas” in our offices also get involved in the fundraising and together we raise money and bring awareness to men’s health issues. We have been participating in Movember since 2011 and we have raised more than $42,000 for this worthy cause.
Our Movember team, Youngs Insurance Brokers Inc. is a proud member of the Movember Insurance Challenge of Canada (MICC), which includes everyone in the industry (brokers, underwriters, appraisers or clients). In 2013, our team placed first in the Insurance Industry Challenge across Canada. We are extremely proud of this accomplishment and strive to be at the top each year.
Make sure you have your mustaches ready!
The Movember Foundation inspires us because its main goal is helping to prevent men from dying too young. It is the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale. The main areas of focus are prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. By 2030, this organization will help to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%.
Youngs Insurance is very passionate about their #GiveBackOntario initiative, as they are dedicated to making a difference in the communities they operate in throughout Ontario. #GiveBackOntario works to inspire and challenge Ontarians to get involved and give back to their communities.
