Join us and our Champions as we raise awareness for the issue of men’s suicide across Canada by posting on social media, bringing the message to your group or organization, and having authentic conversations.
Join the Buddy Up Challenge
Throughout June, we encourage you to complete activities that promote mental well being and drive connection with others! Keep track of the activities you’ve completed and at the end of June, submit your activities and you’ll be entered to win prizes!
Submit the activities you as an individual have completed from June 1-30, 2021 for a chance to win prizes!
What would a Challenge be without prizes? We’ve got some great prizes lined up, including:
Five $100 Amazon gift cards
Three $250 Amazon gift cards
Two $500 Amazon gift cards (All prices in CAD)
Share on social
We’d love to see your progress – share your activities on social using the hashtag #BuddyUp. Follow us on social at @cspyyc to see what others are doing, too!
You can complete the activities, including the Weekly Activities, in any order you’d like.
Activities must be completed by June 30, 2021 and submitted on buddyup.ca/challenge by July 9. You’ll also receive an email with a link to the submission form.
Activities can be completed virtually or in-person. Please follow any public health guidelines and be safe!
Everyone is welcome to participate! Buddy Up is a men’s suicide prevention campaign but we all have a role to play in suicide prevention.
For men, by men
This campaign continues to be informed by an advisory committee and vetted by all-male focus groups.
Thank you to our focus group and advisory committee members for informing our campaign this year and supporting men’s suicide prevention!
