Join Team Meridian as we raise money for MIU Men's Health Foundation!
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. Your tax-deductible donation will go toward supporting community health and outreach programs like...
--The Blue Fund! This program was created to help ease the financial burden by providing short-term financial assistance for men undergoing active treatment for prostate cancer allowing men to focus on healing. We don't want men to have to choose between paying their gas bill or filling a prescription! Recent studies indicate that cancer patients who experience financial hardship and struggle to support their families have a significantly increased risk of mortality. Your tax-deductible donation will ease the financial burden of men and their families as they face the challenges of a cancer diagnosis and treatment.
--Run for the Ribbon 5K Run/Walk! Held each Father's Day at the Detroit Zoo, this family-friendly event raises awareness of prostate cancer and celebrate survivorship. It celebrates the health of our grandfathers, dads, husbands, brothers, uncles, sons, and friends.
--Men's Health Event! A $20 tax-deductible contribution will provide the prostate-specific antigen (PSA), testosterone, glucose, lipid profile, liver function tests, magnesium, and uric acid screenings for one man at this year's event. If the results are out of range, the attendee will receive a call from an RN explaining the results and will receive assistance finding follow-up care. In addition to the bloodwork, men can receive EKGs, echocardiograms, screenings for skin cancer, oral cancer, colorectal cancer, vision, hearing, dental and more! Screenings are valued over $1,800! This free event will provide men a better understanding of how to stay healthy, with information about advances in healthcare. This donation directly impacts the health of men in Metro Detroit.
