During the month of September, ZERO, a leading national nonprofit, has encouraged all men to know their risks and learn about the lifesaving benefits of early detection. The month of September has been flooded with ZERO’s 24 run/walks nationwide. With more than 20,000 annual attendees, this Prostate Cancer Run/Walk series is the largest men’s health event in the nation.

And, the events are not over yet…Thursday, September 24 will be the first ever ZERO Cancer Day. For this one-day-only event, the prostate cancer community will be coming together on social media to spread the word of the urgency and necessity of ending prostate cancer. ZERO’s social media channels will feature live streamed interviews with patients, survivors, caregivers, and doctors, plus interactive segments and fundraising contests.

To learn more about ZERO Cancer Day, how you can donate, as well as resources for early detection visit the ZERO Cancer website.
