Billed as “The Day We Fight Prostate Cancer” Blue Sunday was a major event to raise awareness of Prostate Cancer.
To get men talking to their doctors about prostate cancer, before it ‘s too late.
Almost 19000 Australian men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year. By bringing a team of dedicated corporate partners together to raise the issue in a compelling and impactful way we set out to get blokes to book in with their doctors and get tested.
Blue Sunday was the day that 60000 football fans attending the Collingwood V Richmond showdown would don blue ponchos in a display of solidarity in the fight against prostate cancer. The MCG was transformed into a sea of blue.
