HARTFORD– The 2019 ZERO Prostate Cancer 5k took place raising more than 100,000 dollars.
The money will go towards cancer research and much more.
Elliot Lane is a prostate cancer survivor and says his race started before the 5k, when he was going through treatments years ago which is why he says he is participating in the race to raise awareness.
Elliot Lane said, “You know that maybe later on down the road you can have prostate cancer before it’s too late, so i think it’s really great to you know make people aware of early detection and you can survive.”
