The Big Ball

Hotel Arts, Calgary

Mayfair was a platinum sponsor for The Big Ball fundraiser held at the Hotel Arts on January 31, 2020. This event raised money to support thousands of Calgary men and their families affected by mental health issues, through the Women for Men’s Health Initiative at Calgary’s Prostate Cancer Centre.

Dr. Shelley Spaner is the founder of Women for Men’s Health – an initiative that encourages women to become active players in closing the gender gap when it comes to health and wellness. Mayfair sponsored The Big Ball to support Dr. Spaner and her initiative to help raise money for an important cause – taking care of men, and helping men take better care of themselves. Both the Women for Men’s Health program and Mayfair want to encourage men to visit their doctor and get checked regularly. Identifying modifiable health risk factors related to diet, weight, blood pressure, and blood glucose may help with preventable health concerns and may aid in early detection of many cancers including prostate cancer. An all-inclusive and accessible one-stop program for men’s health will make seeking medical care more convenient.
