TORONTO, March 9, 2023 /CNW/ - Sun Life is proud to announce the launch of Sun Life Healthy You, providing one-of-a-kind health and wellness content from the Toronto Raptors' experts. Featuring the same expertise that keeps elite athletes in top shape and ready to perform, Sun Life Healthy You will help people across Canada live a healthy and balanced life.

"As the Official Health and Wellness Partner of the Toronto Raptors, our goal is to empower people to take charge of their health," said Dave Jones, President, Sun Life Health. "Sun Life Healthy You is a fun and innovative way to provide people with free health and wellness content delivered by Canada's NBA team. This is one of many ways Sun Life is helping people live healthier lives."

Sun Life Healthy You resources cover a wide range of topics. Whether people want to learn more about sleep, nutrition, or exercise, they can now get advice from the Toronto Raptors' physiotherapist, nutritionist, sports psychologist, and trainers.

"Health is really at the centre of everything we do, both on the court and off. The physical and mental health of our players and staff is crucial – after all, how can you perform at your best if you're not feeling your best?" said Toronto Raptors head coach Nick Nurse. "I think it's great that Canadians can benefit from the knowledge of our own health experts, and I'm glad we're able to share those really incredible skills and experiences through Sun Life Healthy You."

In March, Sun Life will launch a national campaign with coach Nick Nurse showcasing the unique content on Sun Life Healthy You and inspiring people to take charge of their health. The campaign aims to reach families across Canada that value an active lifestyle but find it hard to maintain healthy habits while balancing the demands of a busy schedule.

Helping people live healthier lives is one of Sun Life's key sustainability pillars. In 2021, Sun Life announced the creation of Sun Life Health, a new business unit focused on improving health and wellness outcomes for all. To help deliver on this mandate, the expansion of the partnership with the Toronto Raptors will enable Sun Life to reach more people and build awareness of its health offerings.
