2018 Shave Off for Prostate Cancer

The 2018 Shave Off was a tremendous success. Whether supporting “Movember” or “No Shave November” many men took advantage of the Shave Off and are beginning the month clean-shaven in support of Men’s Health: Prostate Cancer, Testicular Cancer, Mental Health and Suicide Prevention. More than $600 was donated to TUCC Foundation for Prostate Cancer Research. But, we’re not done! 

For the entire month of November, any person that donates $10 or more will be entered into the drawing to win one of two signed Nuggets Jerseys: Paul Millsap or Nikola Jokic.

Foundation Programs

TUCC Foundation supports and contributes in the following five overarching areas:

  • COLLABORATION: TUCC Foundation fosters collaborative relationships among community clinics, educational support groups and social services agencies to provide assistance to those who would not otherwise receive necessary urologic care.
  • RESEARCH: TUCC Foundation makes contributions to medical and urologic specific research that improves urologic cancer and non-cancer diagnoses, standards of care and treatments.
