Marvelous Movember


I know @MolsonTonia will do a more formal update BUT…30 days with an itchy upper lip is a mild inconvenience compared to the challenge that many men face in beating back cancer in their lives. Mo-Bros at Molson Coors in Canada stepped up this month in a big way. This awareness was also shared by a number of Mo-Sistas at Molson Coors in Canada who joined the campaign to raise awareness and funds during the month. We were also supported by the Rickard’s brand in raising public awareness for this important cause. All said and done the Molson Coors team can proudly shout out our achievement of raising over $184,000.00 to support Movember in Canada. Thanks to all of those colleagues, family, friends and business associates for taking the time to participate  and or cash from your pockets to make a difference. Cheers to making a difference in men’s health and to promoting active lifestyles. @MolsonFerg

Reflecting on a Hero in our Midst

If you work in a large organization like we do at Molson Coors you can sometimes get caught up in the stream of day to day challenges of the biz and forget the human side of our business and lives. I tend to believe that   most people they mean well, they work hard, enjoy life and strive to be better at what they do at work and at home.

In this morning’s Toronto Star in the Insight Section, there is an inspiring story about one of our colleagues who has had a struggle with cancer over the past few years, yet he has been a beacon for the organization and one of the key lead organizors for our VANCOUVER 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games plans. In fact he’s been at the pointed edge of all communications between Molson Coors and the organizing committee from pin approvals to script revisions to making sure that Molson Canadian, Coors Light and Molson Export will achieve their recognition as official beers for 2010.

David Hayes from the Toronto Star tells a wonder story about Hari Sihvo and I am so proud to shout it out and share it here on our Molson Coors Community blog. Special thanks to Hari for sharing his story so publicly, it will no doubt inspire many. Cheers @MolsonFerg

The 2008 Ride for Cancer with Lance Armstrong was a success, and the $5000 from Molson will help reach the goal of $25,000 which will go towards a linear accelerator for the Regional Cancer Centre at Grand River Hospital.   The participants of the 100 Km ride had an opportunity to ride up front with Lance Armstrong, how great is that!!
