We have grown up watching ‘The Rock’ do a lot of things. From thrashing the life out of people both in the ring and in movies, he is more than a social figure. He is known to be a man with a wonderful heart who not only gives fitness goals a new name, but also lights up the lives he touches. There are a select few celebrities who use their image to make this world a positive place by motivating and influencing their fans, and Dwayne is definitely on that list.

Unforgettable and inspiring day. #HoldOn 🇺🇸

One such amazing association that has stood out on Dwayne’s social media has been his love and affection for Vancouver in Canada.  He’s often shared his tales of struggle and how the city helped him reach where he is today.

Sometimes the goal we’ve worked our ass off for years is never achieved. Then years later we look back and realize, it’s the best thing that NEVER happened.

He is currently shooting for his movie in the same city and his movie project has generated more than 3,000 jobs for people living there, which is a huge number. To felicitate everyone’s beloved ‘The Rock’, the mayor of Vancouver, Gregor Robertson decided to declare 19th October as ‘Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’ day.

“Yes, we do smell what The Rock is cookin, I, Gregor Robertson, Mayor of the City of Vancouver, DO HEREBY PROCLAIM OCTOBER 19, 2017 as DWAYNE ‘THE ROCK’ JOHNSON DAY”, the proclamation read. Dwayne was honoured in a quiet meeting and people didn’t get to celebrate until the announcement was made public by the star on his social media.

It’s official: The Rock Day. Such a cool (and bad ass) honor to have the Mayor of Vancouver, Gregor Robertson, present this proclamation to me last night on set. I’m a grateful man to be in the business of making big movies and entertainment that serve multiple purposes around the world. One of those critical purposes is providing jobs for thousands of hard working people, local businesses and economies every time we bring a production to town. Jobs and opportunities for people. And free waffles for me. Thank you Mayor and your staff for being so gracious and welcoming to myself and our entire production crew to your city. And thank you for this honor and thanks for being such a cool guy. Vancouver will always hold a special place in my DNA. Next time drinks on me.. #ItsOfficial #TheRockProc #October19th #Vancouver #TheRockDay ✊ðŸ?¾

If you are a fan, it doesn’t matter if you are in Vancouver or New Delhi. Any day is a good day to celebrate the big man.
