Men’s Health Week Pledge Campaign

Mountain View

We are asking men and their families to take the ‘one click’ health pledge at CanadianMensHealthWeek.ca and commit to better their health by making simple lifestyle changes like:

• To take the stairs instead of the elevator
• Choose salad as my side.
• Ask, “Does it come in whole wheat?”
• Get off my bus one stop earlier
• And eat more broccoli!

Today I join 1000’s of other Canadian men in taking the Pledge so I can be a healthier husband, father, son and friend.

• Women can also participate in this campaign by encouraging and challenging the men in their lives to take the pledge.

Over the week, CAFE will be posting information and tips #MensHealthWeek

Our Mission

Let’s Ignite the Men’s Health Movement!

• The Canadian Men’s Health Foundation (CMHF) launched in 2014 with the mission to inspire Canadian men to lead healthier lives. We launched the men’s health awareness campaign Don’t Change Much and it has been one of the many sparks in raising men’s health awareness
• CMHF recognizes that it will take a collaborative effort to fully ignite a men’s health and raise the consciousness of men’s health in Canada. That collaborative effort is Canadian Men’s Health Week
• Men’s Health Week takes place over 6 days concluding on Father’s Day
• The week is an open call to all Canadians to help build awareness and action to improve the health of men and families
• The week was 1st launched by CMHF in 2014 and is conducted in tandem with other burgeoning men’s health weeks in 7 countries. Since its inception in 2014 Men’s Health Week has been a collaborative effort, one where partnership is required to reach millions of men, in multiple ways and times

Objectives

In 2015 Canadian Men’s Health Week will:
• Start conversations with, for and about men about their health & well being
• Increase awareness of men’s health and its impact on the individual, the family, the workplace, and society
• Become a legacy event that will change the landscape of men’s and family health in Canada

“Canada and its families would be in a better place if our men lived more active and healthier lives,” says Dr. Larry Goldenberg, CMHF Founder. In time men’s attention to health will become second nature, like wearing seatbelts.
