FAQ: Summit 2022

Learn more about how the 2022 ZERO Virtual Prostate Cancer Summit will work, registering to attend, fundraising, and more.

Virtual Attendance

While we’ll miss seeing you in person, you’ll still have a way to experience live presentations and connect with others online. A virtual event is essentially an event that you can attend from the comfort and convenience of your home, office, or wherever else you can think of, through your personal computer or mobile device. You can expect to learn about the latest disease topics, meet others you can connect with, and advocate for prostate cancer policies.

Attendees will experience the Summit in real time by logging into our virtual experience website: a one-stop place to watch live streams of various presentations, interact with other attendees and exhibitors, and more. To get a feel for our educational programming, check out the video archives from previous years’ events (including the 2021 Virtual Summit).

The bottom line is that the Virtual ZERO Prostate Cancer Summit gives you a chance to fundraise, advocate, educate, and celebrate in a way that is safe for you. Do you want to learn more about the Summit and what it’s like? Email summit@zerocancer.org and we’ll be sure to connect you with a ZERO Summit Ambassador, who can speak to why they return each year, and the value they get out of participating.

Great news — the Summit is free to attend! Since attending the Summit is free, participants are encouraged to fundraise to support ZERO and its programs to help men and families receive assistance and community when they need it most. Sign up for free now!

Attendees will be able to experience the 2022 Summit live, starting with the Bold for Blue Awards on the night of March 4. Throughout the Summit, you’ll be able to log into our website for the virtual experience,  which will become available a week before the event.

No. This year, the virtual Summit will be entirely website-based. You’ll be able to access the site through your desktop computer, laptop, tablet, smartphone, or other mobile device, with no extra technology to download or configure.

One week before the event, attendees will receive instructions for how to get into the virtual live experience website.

No! After the Summit is complete, you’ll be able to watch archived recordings of our speaker sessions, whenever it is convenient for you.

However, viewing sessions when they are live will allow you to join in active conversations, engage with experts in real-time, and more. Be sure to register for the Summit in advance so you can get the latest updates on speakers, sessions, and more.

ZERO advocates absolutely will be meeting with elected officials to discuss prostate cancer research funding, healthcare coverage, and more. On March 8 advocates will meet virtually with their elected officials to share their stories on the importance of increasing funding for the Prostate Cancer Research Program to $120M.

Advocate recruitment is currently underway, but if you’re interested in telling your story to help us promote policy change that will help men and their families, email summit@zerocancer.org.

Call a friend you always see at Summit and tune in together, or wear your best blue outfit from the comfort of your own home during the Bold for Blue Awards!

You can also join with the #ZEROStrong community across the country by fundraising to support prostate cancer patients. And if you’re a patient, caregiver, or loved one of someone who has faced prostate cancer, be sure to join ZERO Connect, an online support network active on Facebook.

Fundraising

YOU can make a difference by fundraising to help patients receive the support they need to fight their battle against prostate cancer. It’s an amazing chance to give back to the prostate cancer community after receiving a free, educational opportunity like the Summit!

At the start of the Summit registration process you’ll be asked whether you’d like to fundraise. Simply answer yes, complete registration, and you’ll be ready to start fundraising!

Once you’re registered, you’ll get easy-to-use tools for creating a Facebook Fundraiser connected to your page in just a couple of clicks, sending email requests to people in your address book, and more. You will also receive a second registration confirmation email with a link to your fundraising page. And we’ll also be in touch with easy tips and guidance for how to fundraise for the Summit. It’s as simple as asking and posting, we promise!

Log in to access your fundraising tools at any time by logging in at zerocancer.org/summit-fundraise. 

Absolutely! If you chose to fundraise during Summit registration, your participant center has a tool that will automatically create a fundraiser for you in just a couple of clicks.

And for those who didn’t indicate that they’d like to fundraise during registration, it’s easy to set up a fundraiser directly within Facebook by following these easy steps:

  1. Login and “like”
    Log in to your Facebook account and head to ZERO’s Facebook page. If you haven’t already, be sure to “like” us!
  2. Create a Fundraiser
    You can either click on the “Create a Fundraiser Page” button at the top of the page, or use the left navigation to select the “Fundraisers” section and press the “Raise Money” button. This creates a shareable page that you’ll soon customize with a title, a goal amount, and an end date.
  3. Personalize your page
    Share your reasons why the fight against prostate cancer is meaningful to you and how donating to your fundraiser will have an impact on those living with this disease.
  4. Select a Photo
    You can upload your own photo to personalize your fundraiser. After you select the photo you want, click “Done.” You’ll have the option to move or crop it.
  5. Publish and spread the word!
    Select “Create” to publish your fundraiser and share it on your Facebook timeline. To reach as many of your friends as possible, be persistent! Make sure to post your fundraiser at least a few times before your end date approaches. Always use the tag @zerocancer and the hashtags #ZEROstrong and #ZEROSummit2022.

Yes! You will be eligible to earn your favorite swag from  ZERO. More details on fundraising incentives will be released soon.

You can create your own fundraising page by visiting the Summit fundraising website and logging in with your username and password. Once you’re logged in, the donate button and register link will be replaced with direct links to your fundraising tools and personal donation page.

Have questions? Trouble signing up? We’re here to support you, so email summit@zerocancer.org and we’ll help you get your page configured.
