About This Activity

Join the City of Houston and Blue Cure as we illuminate downtown and shine a light on prostate cancer prevention at the inaugural Blue Cure Night Run presented by Fred & Mabel R. Parks Foundation and Zumba presented by Life Time.

The 5K run/walk will start and finish at historic Sam Houston Park with an out and back course along Allen Parkway. As you make your turn back toward downtown, City Hall will be illuminated in blue as we recognize the month of September as National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.

And don't think for an instant that the event is over when you cross the finish line. The after party will keep you glowing with music, refreshments and Zumba! So bring the entire family or grab all your friends and coworkers and register today!
