Other Events and Happenings in the Chapter

Hops & Handlebars

After the loss of Ryan’s father, ZERO Champions, Ryan & Anna Pessah decided more needed to be done in their Sacramento community when it comes to prostate cancer education and support. Together founded Hops & Handlebars, inspired by Ryan’s memories of growing mustaches with his dad, along with Anna’s love of great beer. Hops & Handlebars is a year-round prostate cancer awareness fundraiser focused on engaging, uniting, and educating the Sacramento community. To date, they have raised over $25,000 on behalf of ZERO.
