Join The Urology Center of Colorado Foundation for The Blue Shoe Run for Prostate Cancer

September 6, 2010

WHAT:

Run for your father, your husband, your brother, your friend. Run for you! Join The Urology Center of Colorado (TUCC) Foundation for The Blue Shoe Run for Prostate Cancer, a 5K run/walk and 1.5-mile family walk on Saturday, September 25, 2010. All monies raised from The Blue Shoe Run will go toward TUCC Foundation’s efforts to improve local prostate cancer screening, community education and research programs.

Be sure to stick around following each event for a post-race party at TUCC featuring a free Alaskan Brewery Beer Garden, food and drinks, live music from three Denver-based bands, prostate cancer survivor recognition with 7News anchor Mike Landess, prizes and awards, educational booths and kids activities — including a giant inflatable slide!

A free prostate cancer screening will also take place inside TUCC the morning of September 25th. Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Colorado today, but it’s also very treatable when diagnosed at an early stage. African-American men and men with a positive family history should begin annual prostate cancer screenings at age 40. All men should begin these screenings at age 50.
