When UCPA’s Terry Vennell and Cindy Nelson arrived at City Island on Friday, September 20, for the ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk Harrisburg, they knew it would be a special night. The event chair duo, along with other UCPA staff, have helped to plan the Harrisburg ZERO Run/Walk for the past twelve years to fight against prostate cancer. This year they reached some special milestones.
After 12 years, the Harrisburg ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk reached the $1 million raised mark! All funds raised benefit ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer who provides screenings, co-pay assistance, research and education to men across the nation. This year’s event raised over $140,000.
The funds raised are a tribute to the 490 registered ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk participants and their support systems. Organizers estimate between 950-1,000 people attended the event this year.
THANK YOU! Each and every community member and business who spread the word about the event, donated or participated made a big impact in our fight to end prostate cancer.
We look forward to seeing you in 2020!
