Hey team,

Many of you may already know about the Blue Ribbon Run 5k but you may not know the story…. 

My father, Curt Barrons, is a prostate cancer survivor and is dealing with the ongoing effects of the disease. He has beat the odds and is alive but his life and complications would have been greatly changed by early detection…. a truth that we are hoping to share with others. My brother Tom and I are sponsoring this event. This 5k run/walk, will have a clear message to men, to get checked…..  A simple test can determine your PSA level and modern medicine can extend or save your life.  All profits are going to benefit prostate cancer awareness (USToo of Northern Michigan).


The US Too group is establishing itself on a national scale but the local chapter, doesn’t have a lot of working capitol. Their charter is growing but it’s small growth and the hope is that the “Blue Ribbon” campaign will gain strength, similar to the “Pink Ribbon” movement for breast cancer, at least in our area.

My brother Tom and I are sponsoring this event. All profits are going to benefit prostate cancer awareness (USToo of Northern Michigan), we need your help. Sign up, or volunteer. We need cyclists to lead the run and sweep and we need happy smiling faces at a few road intersections.
