On February 23, 2020, we’ll rolled out the “blue” carpet at the Bold for Blue Award Ceremony in celebration of the outstanding men, women, and families who have made a bold impact in the fight against prostate cancer. The award ceremony was held on the first night of the ZERO Summit.
The Bold for Blue Awards recognize ZERO Champions who have the greatest impact in the fight against prostate cancer with their fundraising efforts. From the teams and individuals who participate in the ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk series, to the folks who host their own do-it- yourself (DIY) events locally, and those who participate in our annual Grow & Give campaign, we applaud you for being Bold for Blue!
New to 2020 are the Impact Awards – these warriors were nominated by members of the ZERO Community for their passion, drive, and ultimate impact on our mission to end prostate cancer. The winners of the first-ever Impact Awards were:
Our 2020 Impact Award Nominees were: Valerie Donahue, Maureen Ferguson, Dr. Peter Fisher, Mark Good, Chris Hartley, Dr. Randy Kam, DeMetrius Kee, Christine McMillan, Joseph Musumeci, Dr. Scott Owens, Stan Rosenfeld, Mike Rotz, and Susie Schlernitzauer.
Three honorees also took home Legacy Awards on Sunday evening. Legacy awards are honoring those who have shown passionate commitment and dedication over many decades of service to the prostate cancer community.
