Raymond James – Life Well Lived
By Andre Valade, Senior Vice President, Branch Manager at Raymond James Ltd.
Raymond James and its employees share a desire to give back to the communities in which we work and live. We believe that being active in our communities helps us continue to grow a successful business and build strong personal relationships.
Across the firm, our people volunteer their time and talents to make a difference in the lives of others. Here in Victoria, Raymond James is the title sponsor of Island Prostate Centre’s Father’s Day Walk/Run in support of prostate cancer. This annual event takes place on Father’s Day, this year, on June 18, 2017.
At Raymond James, we know that prostate cancer affects one in eight men in our communities. Because of our sponsorship, 100% of funds raised will directly support programs and services at Island Prostate Centre that serve men and their families on Vancouver Island.
What is Island Prostate Centre?
Island Prostate Centre is a small local organization that provides supporting programming to men and their families when they are faced with a prostate cancer diagnosis. Their on-site registered nurse provides in-person and by-phone private support for men in pre-treatment, during treatment and post-treatment decision making stages.This nurse support program and all of their other survivorship programs are free and no referral is necessary.

We know we can’t run from prostate cancer so we are running for it! Run with Us!
