ZERO Prostate Cancer Annual Report 2021

Racing Toward a ZERO Prostate Cancer Future

Run/Walk Honor Roll


Run/Walk Teams and Individuals Raising $5,000+ Climbing the ZERO Run/Walk fundraising leaderboard is hard work and deserves a round of applause. Thank you to these dedicated leaders for making a difference in the lives of patients and families.

The ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk series is the largest men’s health event series in the United States and the only nationwide prostate cancer run/walk program. Patients and survivors are the true ZERO heroes at our Run/Walk events, and thousands of participants nationwide run, walk, and fundraise in their honor. The COVID-19 pandemic required most of the 2021 ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk season to shift from in-person to virtual. Still, nothing could stop this committed community from sprinting to help ZERO out prostate cancer, successfully connecting patients, survivors, caregivers, families, and friends nationwide to raise awareness, provide support, and raise millions of dollars for patients in need. This year, we were proud to host the ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk back on the ground with the largest event series yet with 46 in-person events and a virtual Run/Walk weekend. The energy was magnetic as communities across the nation were able to connect in support of our cause once again. Thank you to all of those who participated and raised funds to build a ZERO prostate cancer future. Thanks to our dedicated fundraisers, ZERO’s Run/Walks have raised $2.7 million in 2021 and more than $32 million since its inception in 2008, allowing ZERO to support more patients and families during their time of urgent need. The Run/Walk series has built a community of more than 170,000 patients, survivors, caregivers, families, and health advocates and has granted more than $4.5 million to local organizations to provide education, awareness, no-cost screenings, and hands-on care.
