It’s August already! Before you know it, September will be here; and you know what that means—Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. And what better way for you to raise prostate cancer awareness and funding than to participate in the SEA Blue Chicago Prostate Cancer Walk & Run. It’s on Sunday, September 14th in Chicago’s Lincoln Park and this will be the 10th anniversary of the event!
It’s grown to be one of the largest prostate cancer fundraising events—or quite possibly, the largest—in the world! And to think it started 10 years ago with the vision of five local people affected by prostate cancer. They decided to rally the troops and fight back, tell their story and recognize prostate cancer as being the second leading cancer-killer of men.
Whether you’re a team captain, a team member, a runner, or an individual walker, PLEASE FUNDRAISE. (See prizes below.) After registering for the event, create a home page on the event registration website and efficiently reach out to your network of friends, co-workers and relatives with an email asking them to support your participation in the event.
The money you raise helps fund the nonprofit work of Wellness Place and Us TOO International empowering individuals in the prostate cancer community with educational materials and support services at no charge.
For almost 25 years, Us TOO has offered real hope to those battling prostate cancer by providing opportunities to gain the knowledge that’s necessary to take control of managing the disease through an arsenal of resources:
• Us TOO website
• Online communities
• Toll-free Us TOO Prostate Cancer HelpLine
• Chapter/support group services
• HotSheet newsletter
• News You Can Use updates
• Chapter News
• Educational materials – digital and printed
• Educational events and presentations
The SEA Blue partnership with Wellness Place has developed new services specific to the needs of the prostate cancer community in the greater Chicagoland area.
We know that the reason why you participate in the SEA Blue event and raise funds isn’t about you. But we’d like to show our appreciation on behalf of the countless people in the prostate cancer community who benefit from your efforts! With that in mind, we’d like to offer you the following incentives in recognition of you reaching each fundraising milestone.
After raising $100, you can receive a SEA Blue koozie (foam sleeve to keep your beverage cold).
In addition to the koozie, raise a total of $300 and receive a SEA Blue baseball cap.
In addition to the koozie and cap, raise a total of $500 and receive a SEA Blue cooler bag.
In addition to the above items, raise a total of $1,000 and receive a SEA Blue umbrella.
In addition to the above items, raise a total of $2,500 and receive a weekend getaway at the Chicago Hyatt.
In addition to the above items, raise a total of $5,000 and receive an iPad.
Incentives can be picked up at the SEA Blue event on September 14th.
Please note that the incentive items listed above will be awarded based on funds raised by each INDIVIDUAL.
We will also be offering a party at the Hofbrauhaus in Rosemont to each of the three TEAMS that raise the most funds for the SEA Blue event.
REGISTER NOW for the SEA Blue event with the code: SEA8114 and receive $5.00 off.
Thanks in advance for all that you are doing to make this year’s 10th anniversary of the SEA Blue Chicago Prostate Cancer Walk & Run bigger and better than ever!
