"Paint the town BLUE"
National Mesothelioma Awareness Day is just around the corner — Monday, Sept. 26, the Staley Hope Run Organization is asking everyone who supports greater awareness of mesothelioma to wear blue that day.
Blue shirts, blue pants, blue blazers, blue neckties, blue bandanas, blue socks, blue hats, blue face paint or blue fingernail polish, you name it. If it’s blue and if you can put it on, you’re encouraged to do so.
The people seeking a cure for mesothelioma hope to make the wearing of blue on Mesothelioma Awareness Day as thoroughly associated with that annual event as the wearing of green is associated with St. Patrick’s Day.
In honor of Steven Staley, who lost his battle against Mesothelioma in March of 2020, visit his favorite local diner – The Diner - 601 W Michigan St, New Carlisle, Saturday and Sunday, September 24th & 25th – they will be handing out Blue Shirts, Curemeso.org swage and brochures to raise awareness. The Diner will also be collecting donations which will be sent to Cure Meso.org.
