ZERO - Prostate Cancer Run/Walk

Zero Prostate Run and Walk
August 24, 2019
9:00 AM EDT

The desire we had to engage in this fight? ZERO. We’d gladly be anywhere else. 

But now that we’re here, there’s zero chance of us giving up.

We are patients, past and present – unwilling to back down. We are friends and family, loved ones of those engaged in the fight to the end. We are employees and professionals, tired of seeing the people we care about suffer. Our passion is making prostate cancer a national priority and creating Generation ZERO – the first generation of men free from prostate cancer.

Our Run/Walk is our commitment made manifest. It is the time we come together, raising funds and sharing hope to declare one number above others: ZERO.

Thank you to everyone who came out this morning for a great event for an even better cause.  We appreciate our survivors, sponsors, advocates, runners and volunteers for making this a truly special event.  Results are posted below.
