10,000+ Mile Journey to Raise Awareness and Funds Crosses the Finish Line

Scott Freitag, a Stage IV prostate cancer patient from Nevis, MN, completed an extraordinary 10,000-mile+ cycling and fundraising journey on Saturday, June 15, 2024. With friends, family, and supporters, he and his wife, Katy, celebrated the final leg of their ride at Itasca State Park, MN, where they presented more than $225,000 to ZERO. 

Scott and Katy set out one year ago to bike around the perimeter of the United States to raise awareness and funds to fight prostate cancer and schizophrenia. With Scott on his bike and Katy tailing in a trailer, they traveled across 33 state lines. During the trip, Scott heroically juggled radiation and hormone therapy. Scott and Katy also made several stops along their route to meet with other prostate cancer patients and caregivers. 

The Freitags’ epic adventure caught ESPN's eye last spring, and their inspirational story was featured on ESPN's Sports Center on June 22. Congratulations to the Fretiags for making an incredible impact on our prostate cancer community.
