No one is too tough to need help with health - so we're teaming up with the MIU Men's Health Foundation to raise awareness to take on men's health issues!
The MIU Men’s Health Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is dedicated to men’s health advocacy and the awareness, education, research and treatment of prostate cancer and men’s health-related issues.
Check out their 2018 events listed below!
Kick off your summer with Blue Monday on June 11. MIU Men’s Health Foundation launched “Blue Monday” in 2015 to start Men’s Health Week. From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the MIU Men’s Health Foundation will take over Campus Martius in Detroit. Festivities will live music, health screenings, interactive lawn games, food trucks and prizes. Support the men in your life by dressing in blue and donate to your favorite men's health charity. Show off your participation on social media by using #BlueMonday2018.
