Double your Donation

 

Your Gift Does Twice the Good


Reed and her dad

This holiday, you have the opportunity to double your impact! Through December 31, donations will be matched dollar-for-dollar, but more than $60,000 still needs to be raised to ensure that the full $150,000 matching gift is met! Be part of the generous community that helps men like Reed’s dad live more days.

Because of you, my dad lived more than four years. His life was extended by new treatments, which came directly from federal research funding that ZERO fights to protect and increase every year. Your support of ZERO’s mission was truly a gift beyond measure.

– Reed Walter, Loving Daughter

YOUR Impact from Coast to Coast


ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk 2018

Our ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk Series is the only national event series dedicated to the fight against prostate cancer. Thank you for making 2018 a record-breaking year! The ZERO community mobilized in even more cities across the country this year, hitting 42 events from Los Angeles to San Antonio to New York City. In June, we kicked off in Chicago and our final race of the year was last month in Virginia Beach.

One of the most moving moments in 2018 was honoring Dr. Sandy Siegel, who was diagnosed earlier in the year with prostate cancer. Dr. Siegel helped start the run/walk series in partnership with Chesapeake Urology Associates, and is a beloved leader in the ZERO community. Going forward, the Baltimore race will now be named the Dr. Sanford J. Siegel Prostate Cancer Run/Walk.

Because of our amazing fundraisers, urology hosts, and generous run/walk partners including premier sponsor AbbVie, the series raised more than $4.2 million and brought together more than 25,000 patients, survivors, caregivers, families, and loved ones. Funds raised help provide free local screening across the country, critical support for patients, and grassroots advocacy efforts to protect and increase research funding. We can’t wait to see the impact we will have together in 2019!

My brother had prostate cancer earlier this year and is a survivor. What an emotional, intimate event. I’m so glad we were there. We have decided this will be an annual event for our family.

– Karla Renda, Des Moines Run/Walk Participant
