Please check back as the event date nears for additional details.

Prostate Cancer Research Fund

Tulane Cancer Center

One in every seven of our fathers, husbands, brothers or sons will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. One in 36 will die of this disease. Prostate cancer is a formidable opponent, but Dr. Oliver Sartor at Tulane Cancer Center is battling back and making progress. You too can join the fight! There are two ways to help...

  • You can help raise important research funds by making a tax-deductible donation–any amount is appreciated and makes a difference–or by becoming a sponsor of the event. Donations or sponsorship payments can be made online at www.prostaterun.com.
  • You can help raise awareness by registering to participate as a walker or runner in this 2 Mile event.
