About the Event
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, auction/parade of prizes, raffles and party passes benefit prostate cancer research. Proceeds from walk/run registrations benefit the New Orleans Track Club.
