Just by showing up you automatically increase public awareness about prostate cancer while learning more about treatment options and healthy choices. But, by walking with local survivors and Us TOO Rochester, you also advance LOCAL patient support, education and advocacy. Walking is optional, but every participant may do as many laps as they choose and collect free tickets for prize drawings along the way. More laps=More tickets=More chances to win. Laps begin and end at the Food Court. Kids will enjoy the jump-house while Dads & Moms visit with exhibitors and take-in the collection of classic cars throughout the mall. Children age 0-13 are admitted free but must be registered. Read on for complete details.

MISCELLANEOUS:

What does S.E.A. stand for?

The letters "S, E and A" stand for "support, education and awareness", the mission of patient-centered programs at Us TOO Rochester.

Why the color blue?

Blue is to prostate cancer as pink is to breast cancer. For this reason, we want a SEA-of-Blue at the 5th Annual S.E.A. Blue Ribbon Walk. Participants will be welcomed with blue balloons, blue bracelets, and blue ribbons. Blue face-paint and blue surgical gloves will also be available for those who wish to show even stronger support.

How long is each lap?

Each lap around the mall is approximately two miles. Participants using wheelchairs or walkers should be accompanied by a responsible friend to assist as needed. [Fees for the assisting friend will be waived.] Accessible public restrooms are available.

Where to park?

There is ample parking in the Mall at Greece Ridge lots. However, to be near the registration and stage area, park near the Food Court-Entry #8.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Send Email to the event organizer at: pfisher0317@gmail.com or call (585) 787-4011. Ask for Patrick or leave a message.
