Blue Cure Night Run in Downtown Houston

DESCRIPTION

Shine a light with us in recognition of men's health and Prostate Cancer Awareness Month on Saturday, Sep 28, in Downtown Houston, as we run (and dance!) for dads, sons, husbands, grandfathers, brothers, uncles and friends -- because #MensHealthMatters!

Did you know in America, 1 in 3 men will develop cancer in their lifetime and 1 in 9 men will develop prostate cancer? Did you know in Texas, prostate cancer has the highest incidence of cancer among males and is the second leading cause of cancer death among males? *Did you know, 40 percent of men don’t get annual check-ups and just over half (53 percent) of men say that their health just isn’t something they talk about. Blue Cure aims to change this, we believe education and advocacy can immediately save lives!

Arming our men with critical knowledge and information is key, and encouraging men to commit to action is our goal!

The Blue Cure Night Run will shine a big bright light on men's health and prostate cancer across Houston, Texas and beyond! Proceeds benefit Blue Cure’s prostate cancer and men's health education and advocacy programs.

The Blue Cure Night Run is an untimed fun run, that takes place at Sam Houston Park, in front of a brightly lit blue City Hall. This family fun event will include music, dance, Zumba, yoga-stretch and healthy treats.

Children in strollers race free.

There are NO REFUNDS. RAIN or SHINE, we run! BARRING A TROPICAL STORM, HURRICANE, FLOODING OR NATURAL DISASTER.

*According to Cleveland Clinic's "MENtion It" survey.
