Tour De Blue Charity Bicycle Ride!

Urology Centers of Alabama, Birmingham Bicycle Company , ServisFirst Bank and ABC33/40 are promoting prostate cancer awareness and the importance of early detection by sponsoring a cycling event, the Tour de Blue on Saturday May 30th, 2009. This ride leaves from Birmingham Bicycle Company (BBC) at 7:30am on Saturday and meanders its way through Jefferson, Shelby and St. Clair counties. The terrain is rolling with several challenging climbs. The route takes riders from the bike shop to the Logan Martin Dam and back. There will be 50, 75 and 100 mile options. All proceeds from the ride will go to the Urology Health Foundation, a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization and your donation is tax deductible.
The Urology Health Foundation was established as a charitable organization to receive funds to help in our effort to take screening for prostate cancer across the state. Last year the Health Foundation screened 607 men in Perry, Wilcox, Marengo, Hale, Sumter, Madison and Jefferson counties. This year Urology Centers of Alabama will be adding additional sites to increase the number of screenings performed. A donation to the Urology Health Foundation will help bring screenings to those who otherwise would not have it and ultimately, because of early detection, decrease the death rate from prostate cancer in our state.
Any donation to the Urology Health Foundation will help us achieve that goal.
