Nine years ago, two nurses working in the surgery center of The Urology Group had an idea. Having seen the challenges of a prostate cancer diagnosis, they wanted to raise awareness of the disease and find a way to help patients and their families.
From that inspiration, our organization began sponsoring and hosting an annual race for prostate cancer. At that first event in 2007, we had about 100 runners. This year’s ZERO Prostate Cancer 10k/5k on Saturday, September 12, will feature more than 1,500 participants, along with hundreds of volunteers, visitors and spectators.
Every year, one of the event’s highlights is the recognition of the prostate cancer survivors in attendance. It’s always inspiring to see the courage and determination of these men, many of whom are battling the disease with the full support of family members, loved ones, friends and neighbors.
Thanks to the tireless efforts of our race board and volunteers, it’s easy for you to participate and make a difference in the lives of prostate cancer patients – and those who have yet to be diagnosed.
You have many options to show your support. If you’re a runner, run. If you prefer walking, walk. If you’re in the neighborhood, stop by. If you can do neither, make a contribution. It’s simple to get more details or register online here.
Consider this an open invitation to join us. We’re proud that over the past decade, this has grown to become the largest event in the region that benefits prostate cancer.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
