National Volunteer Week 2017

As Canada celebrates 150 years as a nation, this week marks National Volunteer Week (NVW), a time specifically dedicated to celebrating Canadians all across the country who so generously volunteer their time to help further the mission of organizations such as Prostate Cancer Canada (PCC).

On behalf of the 1 in 7 Canadian men and their families who will face a prostate cancer diagnosis in their lifetime, I want to personally thank you for helping to make a difference in their lives. Together, we continue to make significant progress in our shared pursuit to overcome the most common cancer in men. Without your dedication, enthusiasm, and talent, the tremendous impact we’re having simply would not be possible.

I encourage you to take a minute this week to share a photo of you volunteering with us on our social media pages and let us know why volunteering at PCC is important to you. And follow us all week to see messages from our staff to you.

My message is below:

We continue to look forward to working with you, building on our volunteer program success, and ensuring that your volunteer experience is as meaningful as possible.

With sincere gratitude,

Rocco Rossi
President and Chief Executive Officer
Prostate Cancer Canada
