SEA Blue, the largest and longest-running prostate cancer event in Chicago, takes place on Sunday, September 15, 2019, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., in Lincoln Park at the intersection of LaSalle and Stockton on Chicago’s lakefront. Money raised will help fund the work of Us TOO International (www.ustoo.org), a nonprofit that provides educational resources and support services to the prostate cancer community at no charge.
Each year, the prostate cancer community gathers to raise funds and awareness for Support, Education, and Advocacy (the “SEA” of SEA Blue) for those affected by the disease. Individuals and teams participate in a 5K race or a celebration walk through Lincoln Park.
In addition to the walk and run, SEA Blue will include a “Talk to the Experts” education tent, free PSA (prostate-specific antigen) testing, an event t-shirt, free lunch and snacks, free beer (one per 21+), a performance by the Jesse White Tumblers, live music, and a “family fun zone” for kids. This year’s event introduces the “Pups for Prostates Parade,” encouraging well-behaved, leashed dogs decked out in appropriate blue regalia to participate in a pet-friendly walk with their companions. The event is emceed by prostate cancer survivor and WGN TV news anchor, Steve Sanders, with a special guest appearance by Dave Fogel of 94.7 WLS FM, who is also a survivor.
