About the Event
Cancelled 2020 Event
Due to uncertainty regarding COVID-19 phasing, as well as state, local and University guidelines related to public gatherings this fall, the 2020 NOLA Bluedoo event has been canceled. We deeply appreciate all who have helped to make this event a huge success over the past six years. Your support of Tulane’s Prostate Cancer Research Fund has made a difference!
Although the event is canceled, prostate cancer continues, unfortunately. And funds are still urgently needed to assist in the search for new treatment options and hopefully a cure. You can continue to help by making a tax-deductible donation today! Every penny is immediately available to Dr. Sartor and his team as they work to make progress against this disease.

Prefer to donate via check? Please send to Tulane Cancer Center, ATTN: K. Green, 1430 Tulane Ave., #8668, New Orleans, LA 70112. Please make check payable to “Tulane Cancer Center” and reference “NOLA Bluedoo” in the memo line.
Bluedoo is a festival-style celebration of prostate cancer survivorship – with great food, drink, music, 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.
Proceeds from donations, sponsorships, raffles and festival passes benefit prostate cancer research. Proceeds from walk/run registrations partially benefit prostate cancer research.
