8 challengers, all fell to the might of John Chick and all had to pay the piper!
This season, Sun Life Financial and the CFL teamed up to launch the Sun Life Financial Kick Diabetes program to raise awareness for type 2 diabetes and have some fun in the process! The Kick Diabetes program has been connecting Team Sun Life players with their CFL fans through social media interaction using the hashtag #SunLifeKickDiabetes. Each week, Team Sun Life captain John Chick of the Saskatchewan Roughriders faced off against a different Team Sun Life player in a social media challenge competing for the highest number of retweets. The player with the fewest retweets for the week was challenged to post a video that showed CFL fans a different side of themselves… all with the goal of getting as many people to TAKE THE TEST as possible!
Every week John came out victorious. Here is a collection of all the videos!
