ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk
The race was on August 27th, 2016.
The 5K Run/Walk and 1-Mile Fun Run event is part of the ZERO Prostate Cancer Challenge — the premier men’s health event series in America — that visits more than three-dozen cities across the nation each year. This tight-knit community activity brings together athletes, doctors, cancer survivors and those who care about them to end prostate cancer.
Money raised through the race helps out in many different ways …
- 50 cents of every dollar raised stays in our local community to fund research, testing and support.
- 50 cents of every dollar funds national advocacy efforts to increase and protect federal dollars for prostate cancer research. Every dollar dedicated to advocacy is converted into $9 for research!
- Since 2008, ZERO has provided more than 50,000 free tests and more than $1 million toward local prostate cancer programs and research.
In its inaugural year of 2013, the fundraising race attracted an impressive 250 participants and raised $35,000 for the prostate cancer charity.
