Serious runners and people serious about prostate cancer alike participated in the fourth annual NOLA Bluedoo Party/Walk/Run on Saturday, Sept. 30, on Tulane’s uptown campus. The event raises awareness of prostate cancer, and proceeds benefit the Prostate Cancer Research Fund at the Tulane Cancer Center.

Dr. Oliver Sartor, center, medical director of the Tulane Cancer Center, holds a sign at the start of the run with former New Orleans Saints linebacker and NFL Hall-of-Famer Rickey Jackson, left, and A.P. Sanchez, president of the Zulu Social Aid and Pleasure Club.

Runners take off at the start of the fourth annual Bluedoo Party/Walk/Run on Saturday evening. The 2-mile course took runners through Tulane’s uptown campus.

Runners and spectators were encouraged to costume in blue, the official color of prostate cancer awareness.

Nathan & the Zydeco Cha-Chas entertain the crowd during the post-race party.

Runners and those who just came to party can’t help but dance on the academic quad.
