Under his leadership, Movember Canada grew to become the largest fundraising country around the world. After nearly five years, Pete left Movember Canada and has since focused on the roll out of his passion project, The GenWell Project.The need for the Human Connection Movement was clear long before the global pandemic, but Covid-19 has raised the collective awareness about how much we actually need each other and how a lack of human connection can lead to mental and physical health issues and less happiness in our lives. Beyond the pandemic, there will be a great need to get people re-connected, whether because they are struggling, are out of their routine or if they are looking to find more purpose. Human connection transcends every illness, cause and crisis. We are going to need each other more than ever as we work to recover from the global pandemic.Pete is frequently a keynote speaker, commentator and writer who has contributed opinion pieces for print, magazines, radio and online.
