HOBOKEN--On Tuesday, Sept. 4 Hoboken City Hall (94 Washington St.) "turned blue" to create awareness about prostate cancer, a disease that will affect one in nine men in the U.S. The color blue is recognized as the official color to bring awareness about prostate cancer.

Cities and communities across the U.S. will light more than 40 famous landmarks and buildings blue to join the Prostate Cancer

Foundation (PCF) in kicking-off Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the PCF’s efforts of advancing prostate cancer research. In honor of Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, the PCF is making it the Prostate Cancer ACTION month to create awareness, spark conversations about prostate cancer, and raise funds to help accelerate research. The public is encouraged to capture the blue landmarks with photos and/or videos and post it to their social media platforms using #PCFDoBlue to help share a message of hope and solidarity for anyone affected by this disease.

As part of the PCF’s DO BLUE campaign, the PCF will be premiering a new public service announcement, I’d Rather starring actor Dax Shepard as well as launching the PCF Pushup Challenge.
