DC Goes Blue

Every June, be part of the national movement to raise awareness about men’s health by wearing blue. Nationally, the Men’s Health Network is leading the charge to “wear blue for men’s health”—and locally Community Wellness Alliance is uniting the community to GO BLUE FOR MEN’S HEALTH!

Men’s Health Network warns that there is, “an ongoing, increasing and predominantly silent crisis in the health and well-being of men.” Fueling the crisis are a lack of awareness, poor health education, and culturally induced behavior patterns in men’s work and personal lives. As a result, men’s health and well-being are deteriorating:

  • On average, men live 5 years less than women
  • 1 in 2 men will develop cancer in their lifetime
  • 1 in 6 men will get prostate cancer and approximately 28,000 men will die from the disease this year
  • Men die at higher rates from 9 of the top 10 causes of death
  • Men make up over 92% of workplace deaths

W2W, the Community Wellness Alliance and our allies are calling on men and women of all ages to stand with us in our local communities to make a difference in men’s health. Go blue with us every June and take a stand for men’s health during the other 11 months of the year, too!
