Get Your Blue On! Fifth Annual NOLA Bluedoo!

Saturday, September 15, 2018 Tulane University’s Uptown Campus – Gibson Quad

The walk/run and celebration of survivorship will raise awareness...

and important funds for prostate cancer research at Tulane Cancer Center.

You don’t have to walk or run to enjoy the event.

There will be pre- and after-race parties, with New Orleans-style food, drink, music, costuming, a silent auction, kids’ tent and other entertainment!

Approximately 1,000 walkers, runners and revelers attended last fall's event,

and 121 sponsors helped raise over $130,000 for research, bringing Bluedoo’s four-year total to $566,000!

Just as important, people had fun.

It was a joyful occasion for families and friends – supportive, loving, celebratory.

My deepest thanks go to the sponsors, in-kind donors, volunteers and other supporters of NOLA Bluedoo.

Please join me again this September 15 at the Fifth Annual NOLA Bluedoo!  Get Your Blue On! – Dr. Oliver Sartor
NOLA Blue Doo Run

One in every seven of our fathers, husbands, brothers or sons will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. One in 39 will die of this disease. Prostate cancer is a formidable opponent, but through research and the tireless dedication of world-renowned experts like Tulane Cancer Center’s Oliver Sartor, M.D., we are battling back, and we are making progress. You can join the fight! On Saturday, September 15, 2018, Tulane Cancer Center will host the Fifth Annual NOLA Bluedoo Party/Walk/Run to benefit the prostate cancer research fund at Tulane Cancer Center.
