MIU Men's Health Foundation

Men's Health Non-Profit

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.

As a 501(c)3 nonprofit 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.  The Men's Health Event is one of the largest free screening events in the U.S. It takes place on September 21 at Ford Field. A donation of $18 will provide a PSA, Testosterone, Glucose and Cholesterol and six other blood tests for one man along with important and life changing medical information for FREE to men who don't have health insurance. So what else does the MIU Men's Health Foundation do? We provide many health screenings valued over $2,000 for men at NO cost every fall at our Men's Health Event. Men come to the event and get screenings for important blood tests, lung function tests, BMI analysis, body fat percentage, vision screening, dental screening, hearing screening, blood pressure and heart rate, even EKGs, FOR FREE plus a lot of other cool stuff happens like field goal kicking, give-aways, even a free lunch and haircut! We provide the financial assistance for men going through active treatment of prostate cancer through The Blue Fund, and employ a registered nurse to help prostate cancer patients navigate this new and oftentimes, scary, road. We've provided over $53,000 since 2016 to help men with their house and car payments, phone and other utility bills.  Our Run for the Ribbon 5k Run/Walk raises the awareness of prosate cancer in our community! Prostate Cancer is the most common type of non-skin cancer found in American men. It is estimated that more than 2 million men are prostate cancer survivors, either diagnosed and treated or living with the disease. Over 1,500 people come and show their support for loved ones. We also hold Prostate Cancer Survivor Events where survivors and their families can share moments and stories of survivorship and learn about the latest advances in treatment.
