2019 Run/Walk Season Begins!


Join us for the ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk

With five new race locations this year, we begin our 2019 Run/Walk season this weekend in one of our new cities – Omaha!

ZERO’s race program is the only nationwide prostate cancer run/walk series, raising $4M annually to help end the disease and provide impactful programs to support local patients. This year there are 43 Run/Walks throughout the country, running May to November, giving you plenty of options!

“At my first race, I didn’t know what to expect,” said Chris Hartley, a prostate cancer survivor and Austin Run/Walk participant. “I left feeling a new sense of community and filled with hope. No man should have to fight this disease alone and attending a ZERO Run/Walk helped me realize my community is here for me.”

Check out all our locations and learn more about participating in a run/walk near you!

Double Your Gift to Save a Man


Your generosity helps men like Carl

It wasn’t long ago that Carl was teetering on the brink. Bills were piling up, debt collectors were calling, and prostate cancer was a ticking time bomb inside him.

I was in limbo. The cancer was growing, but I had no way to address it and move forward.

– Carl, Prostate Cancer Patient

Every day, prostate cancer patients are falling through the cracks. If not for your help, Carl would have been one of them. You can make sure that men like him get the help they need to start and continue life-saving treatments.

For a limited time, matching funds double your gift. Will you save a man?

Double your Donation

Turn Your Passion into Action!

April and her brothers were devastated when they lost their dad to prostate cancer. Ever since, they’ve worked to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer by participating in different fundraisers for ZERO.


April Honored her father by creating a Facebook Fundraiser to fight prostate cancer

Last month April hosted a Birthday Fundraiser for ZERO on Facebook and set the goal as $500. She never expected to reach that goal, but was truly overwhelmed when the goal was surpassed!

“Every donation made me tear up, as I could only hope that those donations were going to such a great cause where at least one man can and will be helped, and one man can potentially be saved.”

If your passion is to raise funding to fight prostate cancer, you can join the thousands who host a fundraiser on Facebook to support ZERO. Meet April later this month when she speaks with ZERO’s Sierra on ZERO Live!
