Coming SOON: Prostate Cancer Awareness Month!


Family holding #ZEROStrong banner

Our favorite month of the year is almost here. Get ready to have an eventful Prostate Cancer Awareness Month (PCAM) — literally! With tons of virtual events to choose from, you can take part in an event every weekend in September. Plus don’t miss our educational social media campaign, webinars and more, including our first-ever comedy show!

Mark your calendars, subscribe to social media, and take action with three easy ways to get involved:

  • Follow ZERO on social media! Every Monday in September, we’ll be busting some #MondayMyths around prostate cancer, and on Fridays we’ll be sharing some #FridayFacts. Head to Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, or Twitter to be in the know! (And remember – share, like, and comment to help spread awareness!)
  • Take action! Join thousands across the country who are spreading the word by sharing their passion to support patients in this critical time of need on social media. Register for an upcoming virtual event (more details below), download and print the #ZEROstrong sign, snap a pic, and then share it on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Remember to use the hashtags #ZEROstrong in your posts for a chance to receive a shout-out from ZERO on social media!
  • In a few weeks, new ZERO shirts from Nike will be available for purchase! These shirts — available in women and men’s cuts — will also be customizable, so you can showcase who you’re #ZEROstrong for by wearing one. Purchases will benefit ZERO. Stay tuned for more details!
