About

 

The First Annual Blue Man Run Against Prostate Cancer was held Saturday June 17th at Zocolo Neighborhood Eatery & Drinkery in Shreveport. Our first event was a huge success with over 200 race participants and many other there to show their support of this great cause. We raised over $15,000 to support the race and 75% of leftover funds will stay in our local community.

More about the run:

Prostate Cancer is the most common solid organ cancer in men and is the second leading cause of cancer related deaths. It is estimated that over 180,000 American men with be diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2016 and over 26,000 will die because of prostate cancer.

Us TOO was founded by—and continues to be governed by—people directly affected by prostate cancer. The mission of Us TOO is to provide hope and improve the lives of those affected by prostate cancer through support, education and advocacy. What began back in 1990 with five men in Chicago and an idea to form the first prostate cancer support group has grown over the past 25 years into Us TOO International providing comprehensive educational materials and resources along with support services that include more than 300 volunteer-led support groups across the U.S. and abroad.

The Shreveport Bossier City chapter of Us Too was organized to provide support, education, and advocacy for local patients and families affected by prostate cancer, as well as to provide education about prostate cancer to the community. The Blue Man Run Against Prostate Cancer was organized to act as a platform for patient support and community education. It is also a means to raise funds for future outreach programs. While many national organizations take most funds raised in events similar to this, 75% of all funds raised will STAY in your LOCAL community to support our mission.
