3rd Annual NOLA BlueDoo Runs
The NOLA Bluedoo Party/Walk/Run is a two-mile competitive race, held in conjunction with the New Orleans Track Club (NOTC), which takes walkers and runners on a tour across Tulane University’s beautiful Uptown campus. In fact, it is part of the NOTC’s 2016 Grand Prix Race Circuit. Proceeds from donations, sponsorships, auction/parade of prizes, and party passes benefit Dr. Oliver Sartor’s Prostate Cancer Research Fund at Tulane Cancer Center.
But you don’t have to walk or run in order to enjoy the event! Bluedoo is also a party – a celebration of prostate cancer survivorship for the whole family – with plenty of great food, New Orleans-style entertainment, costuming in blue (the color of prostate cancer awareness), a Kids’ Tent, a Survivor Tent, and more!

New Orleans ALS Walk
More than just a few-mile trek, the Walk to Defeat ALS® is an opportunity to bring hope to people living with ALS, to raise money for a cure, and to come together for something you care about. The Walk to Defeat ALS® is The ALS Association’s biggest annual event, which raises funds that allow our local chapters to sustain care services and support research for much of the next year.
