RUN WITH YOUR MAN FOR PROSTATE CANCER
The Blue Cap Movement, University of Malaya (UM) in collaboration with MySihat from Ministry of Health, Malaysian Urological Association (MUA), Prostate Cancer Society Malaysia and UMMC Exercise Support Group successfully organised the 3rd Blue Cap Relay Run for Prostate Cancer on 24 September 2017 at the Dataran Dewan Tunku Canselor, UM. Gracing the event was YBhg. Datuk Soh Chin Aun, a former national football player who is also the 2017 Blue Cap Relay Run Ambassador.
In line with this year’s theme “Run with your man”, the event aimed to promote men’s health and provide support for prostate cancer survivors in Malaysia. A total of RM100,000 was raised from the 3x3 km relay run and the fund was channelled to the Urological Cancer Trust Fund in support of treatment and awareness of prostate cancer.
Founded in June 2015, the Blue Cap Movement is a non-profit movement, initiated by urologists from the Urology Division, UM and cancer survivors from the Prostate Cancer Support Group. Unlike other international campaigns, Blue Cap Movement is a unique home-grown program tailored exclusively for Malaysians. The movement addresses issues on men’s health and provides health information education as well as support for prostate cancer survivors.
