Kick-off Men's Health Week
Blue Monday is a day to promote men's health engagement, education and advocacy and demonstrate a dedicated interest in the men's health movement.
As part of Blue Monday, men, women and children who wish to support the men in their lives are asked to dress in blue, and men are encouraged to plan exercise or a healthful activity to be a part of that day. Businesses, corporations and community organizations are asked to embrace Blue Monday as part of their culture, joining employees together to support the cause.
To expand awareness for Men’s Health, MIU Men’s Health Foundation has labeled the Monday of Men's Health Week each year as Blue Monday.
This year's Blue Monday Celebration was held on June 12, 2017 at Campus Martius in Detroit in partnership with the Detroit Parks and Recreation Department and Healthy Detroit! The celebration included live music, health screenings, stretching with Citizen yoga, food trucks, basketball, fun games and prizes!
