SAN DIEGO–ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer joins forces with Genesis Healthcare Partners to host the ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk this September.
The goal is to create Generation ZERO – the first generation of men free of prostate cancer. Participants will run and walk together on September 9 to fight a disease that takes the life of an American man every 20 minutes.
San Diego joins 40+ communities across the nation as part of the ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk series, which promotes awareness for prostate cancer and encourages men to be informed about their risk. Prostate Cancer Awareness Month brings the national spotlight to prostate cancer, encouraging this vital and necessary awareness on both a national and local level. More than 14,520 men in California will be diagnosed with prostate cancer this year.
“The ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk rallies communities and gives participants a voice in the fight to end prostate cancer,” said ZERO CEO Jamie Bearse. “We’re making prostate cancer a national priority. The Run/Walk series is a way to mobilize the prostate cancer community and raise funds for patient support programs to ensure that no man has to face prostate cancer alone.”
Run/Walk participants will receive tech shirts, refreshments, and the opportunity to connect with others who are impacted by prostate cancer. Funds raised for this year’s Run/Walk event will go toward national efforts to provide research for new treatments, to enhance patient support resources, and to educate men and families about prostate cancer.
The race will take place at De Anza Cove Park in San Diego.
