ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk is Going VIRTUAL in 2020

Due to the pandemic, the ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk is going virtual on Saturday, September 12. Your support is even more important in 2020 since this change will likely affect fundraising goals.

We know everyone is spread thin because of COVID-19. But every dollar helps in our efforts to end prostate cancer for good.
