Paralegals for Prostate 2014
Ontario paralegals have joined together with Prostate Cancer Canada to raise money and awareness by selling a limited edition "Paralegals for Prostate" armband and wearing them this fall.
"Anybody who purchased them supported this initiative and all of the proceeds went toward prostate cancer research," says Newmarket paralegal Marian Lippa.
The black charity armband has the words "Paralegals for Prostate" in the centre in white letters and both Ontario Paralegal Network and Prostate Cancer Canada logos on each side. The black “Paralegals for Prostate” charity armbands cost $20.
Prostate Cancer Canada is the only national foundation dedicated to the elimination of the disease through research, educational support and awareness.
The Paralegals for Prostate event continued through November to coincide with Movember, the annual month-long event involving the growing of moustaches to raise awareness of men's health issues, such as prostate and other male cancers.
Paralegals and other members of the legal community showed their support and helped raise awareness by buying and wearing these charity armbands. One hundred per cent of the proceeds from the sale of the armbands was donated directly to Prostate Cancer Canada.
