Memphis resident Clarence Williamson is working hard to raise awareness about prostate cancer. A prostate cancer survivor himself, Clarence will be fundraising and participating in the SEA Blue 2020 National, Virtual Prostate Cancer Walk and More will take place Sunday, September 13, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. This live-streaming web event will raise funds and awareness for those affected with prostate cancer. Traditionally held in Chicago during September which is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, the event has been restructured this year to provide Support, Education and Advocacy (the SEA in SEA Blue) to the prostate cancer community while complying with Covid-19 restrictions. The event benefits US TOO International, a non profit organization which offers programs and services free of charge to those affected by prostate cancer. “We are doing our best to make this year’s SEA Blue event feel as close as possible to the rich experience found at the in-person event, with many of the same activities – including the walk, run, teams, fundraising, entertainment, information and more,” said Beau Stubblefield-Tave, executive director of Us TOO International.
As in years past, participants are encouraged to form teams but this year teams will be providing video clips for the virtual event taking place on September 13. The live web event, held at Hoffbrau House in Rosemont, will be emceed by prostate cancer survivor and WGN TV news anchor, Steve Sanders. UroPartners is the presenting sponsor. While the live streaming event takes place in Chicago, the virtual nature allows SEA Blue to connect to a national audience for the first time, allowing for potentially the largest audience in the event’s history. There will be no fee for registration for this year’s event, but donations and fundraising are encouraged. “We know everyone is experiencing effects from Covid-19, whether they be physical, emotional or financial. With this in mind we are making this year’s event ‘pay what you can,’ because we don’t want to prevent anyone from joining us for this positive, empowering and educational experience,” Stubblefield-Tave said. Registration is required to view the live stream. Registrants will receive a video link prior to the event for viewing. To register or donate visit www.seablueprostatewalk.org.
