Men's Health Non-Profit

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, MIU Men's Health Foundation is dedicated to men's health advocacy and the awareness, education, research and treatment of prostate cancer and men's health related issues.

As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, MIU Men's Health Foundation is dedicated to men's health advocacy and the awareness, education, research and  treatment of prostate cancer and men's health related issues.  The Men's Health Event  is one of the largest free screening events in the U.S. and takes place each fall at Ford Field. A donation of $20 will provide a PSA, Testosterone, Glucose and Cholesterol and six other blood tests for one man along with important and life changing medical information for FREE helping men who don't have health insurance. So what else does the MIU Men's Health Foundation do? We provide many health screenings in addition to the blood tests valued over $2,000 for men at NO cost at our Men's Health Event. Many men have come to use this as their annual check up, as they can see many different specialities without missing multiple days of work to separate appointments. A lot of other cool stuff happens like field goal kicking, give-aways, even a free lunch and haircut! A program we offer year-round is designed for men going through active treatment of prostate cancer. We offer financial assistance through The Blue Fund helping keep the family whole as bills increase and ability to work decreases. We've provided over $57,000 since 2016 to help men with their house and car payments, phone and other utility bills while they heal from treatment.  Our Run for the Ribbon 5K Run/Walk raises the awareness of prosate cancer in our community! Prostate Cancer is the most common type of non-skin cancer found in American men. It is estimated that more than 2 million men are prostate cancer survivors, either diagnosed and treated or living with the disease. Over 1,500 people come and show their support for loved ones each Father's Day at the Detroit Zoo! We also hold Prostate Cancer Survivor Events where survivors and their families can share moments and stories of survivorship and learn about the latest advances in treatment.
