Manitoba Blue Cross named Official Health and Wellness partner

Golf Manitoba Executive Director Jared Ladobruk announced today a new multi-year partnership with Manitoba Blue Cross.

Under the agreement, Manitoba Blue Cross will have a presence at select Golf Manitoba championships and events to provide golfers with on-the-spot wellness support. The health benefits provider will also offer monthly physical and mental health tips and strategies to support a golfer’s game and their overall well-being. To protect health when away from home, Golf Manitoba members can also save 10 per cent on travel health coverage from Manitoba Blue Cross. This discount will also be applied to any eligible family members listed on the policy who are travelling with the member.

“We are looking forward to embarking on this new relationship with Manitoba Blue Cross” said Ladobruk. “The avenues that Manitoba Blue Cross makes available to support the health and wellness of Manitobans is second to none.  That is why this partnership is a natural fit for us. Their mission aligns with our desire for more individuals to start to understand and appreciate the game’s wider range of health benefits.”

“Our new partnership with Golf Manitoba is fitting as we continue to support Manitobans to live better and healthier lives,” says Benjamin Graham, Manitoba Blue Cross President and CEO. “We are excited to support golfers throughout the province in preventing injury and strengthening mental health as they play the game and appreciate all the ways the sport can benefit them on and off the green.”

Manitoba Blue Cross and Golf Manitoba encourage more Manitobans to experience the benefits of golf. Throughout the pandemic, golf played a valuable role in many people’s lives as it was one of the few ways that friends and family were able to safely connect while experiencing the physical, social, mental and emotional benefits of the game.
