Let’s BLUE This!
– Sixth Annual NOLA Bluedoo. Saturday, September 21, 2019 – Tulane University’s Uptown Campus
This festival-style celebration of prostate cancer survivorship will raise awareness and important funds for prostate cancer research at Tulane Cancer Center.
Bluedoo is a festival-style celebration of prostate cancer survivorship – with great food, drink, music, costuming, a kids’ tent, a survivor tent, a two-mile walk/run and MORE. It’s also a fundraiser – the ONLY prostate cancer event of its kind in our area – benefiting Dr. Oliver Sartor’s Prostate Cancer Research Program at Tulane Cancer Center.
Approximately 1,000 guests attended last fall’s event, and 250 sponsors helped raise over $193,000 for research, bringing Bluedoo’s five-year total to $758,000!
Just as important, people had fun.
It was a joyful occasion for families and friends – supportive, loving, celebratory.
“On behalf of my research team and most importantly the patients who will benefit from our progress, please accept my deepest thanks. Having you in our corner makes us stronger and better! Please join me again this September 21 at the Sixth Annual NOLA Bluedoo!” – Dr. Oliver Sartor
One in every nine of our fathers, husbands, brothers or sons will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. One in 41 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 21, 2019, Tulane Cancer Center will host the Sixth Annual NOLA Bluedoo to benefit the prostate cancer research fund at Tulane Cancer Center.
