Top 10 Run/Walk Photos of 2018

I started as a Marketing Intern at ZERO right around the time of the first Run/Walk in the 2018 series. Hearing stories from the staff about their experience at the races really hit home how important they are to local communities. Sorting through the photos, I can feel the love and sense of community that each person feels when they attend a ZERO race. It’s inspiring! The attendees and sponsors are supportive, enthusiastic, and proud to be advocates to end prostate cancer.

See for yourself! Check out my top ten favorites from the Spring season.

1. Chicago

Luis de la Vega died of prostate cancer in February after a four year battle; he was an up-by-his-bootstraps steelworker for 47 years who put his seven children through college. Rose and her family fight on in his name to end this terrible disease, using his nickname “Strong Like Bull” and fighting with passion and purpose to honor his memory. #StrongLikeBull

2. Washington, D.C.

Fun, right? Our D.C. race is just that, and with more than 1,000 folks joining us on Father’s Day weekend, it was one of our largest events this year. The race has become a Father’s Day weekend tradition for many families wanting to honor those they lost or who are battling the disease, and this year we honored them with #DoItForDad.

3. Hartford

The survivor and caregiver ceremony is one of the most heartwarming parts of the race series. Honoring the men fighting prostate cancer and those who love and care for them is just one way we show them how much their incredible and inspiring dedication means to us.

4. Los Angeles

Scott Moore is a prostate cancer survivor who brought 179 (!) of his family, friends, and co-workers to the race, raising over $10K along the way! And he did it in style: Scott’s signature race-day outfit is a kilt.

5. Portland

This year we gave fundraisers a chance to completely customize their lawn signs with photos, stories, and names of the men they are walking or running for! It was inspirational to see these signs along each race route.

6. Raleigh

These banners are just another way for participants at the races to tell us who they are fighting for. We love reading all of your messages and personalized notes! We even have one from D.C. hanging in our headquarters.

7. Ripple Run

The Ripple Run honors and cherishes the memory of Andrew Zweig, a prostate cancer patient who battled late stage disease for many years. The race was created by his widow, Wendy, and her friends Sue and Nancy to honor his memory and raise money to fight the disease that took him from his family.

8. Salt Lake City

Brandon created this awesome painting using only a tie as his brush! His father is a prostate cancer survivor and ZERO Champion and Brandon creates works of art like this to raise money for ZERO – except this one, which he gave to a prostate cancer survivor at the race!

9. Syracuse

ZERO’s spokesman Jimmy Charles pumped up the crowd in Syracuse, attending the race with new advocate and prostate cancer patient Mark Thompson, for whom Jimmy performed a “bucket list” birthday concert a few weeks before.

10. Wichita

Bill Starnes has been fighting prostate cancer for eight years. At this year’s race Jamie got a chance to meet Bill, his wife Linda, and their family, a moment five years in the making.

It was actually a trip to Fort Myers, FL that lead to this moment. That’s where Jamie met their daughter-in-law, Christina, who then reached out to Wichita Urology to bring the Run/Walk to Kansas.
