Share Photos to Celebrate National Seniors Day!
In celebration of National Seniors Day on October 1, Sanofi Pasteur is creating a larger-than-life, domino-inspired photo exhibit that celebrates seniors while also raising awareness of the burden of flu, the domino effect it has on their lives, and the importance of protecting them and keeping them active, healthy and independent.
The photo exhibit will feature Canadian seniors from across the country and will be open to the public at the Richmond-Adelaide Centre in Toronto from October 1 to October 4.
How You Can Participate
We encourage you to help celebrate National Seniors Day by sharing a photo of a senior loved one. Photos can be of friends, family, neighbours or colleagues and are a perfect way to pay tribute to any senior who has positively touched your life. If you’re 65+ and want to submit a photo of yourself, you are encouraged to do so as well!
For every photo and/or personal story of a senior submitted, Sanofi Pasteur will donate $2 to Wish of a Lifetime Canada, a charity that helps seniors fulfill lifelong dreams. The goal is to raise a minimum of $12,200, representing the number of hospitalizations due to influenza in Canada each year*, up to a maximum of $24,400 for the charity.
