Battle Against Prostate Cancer goes Virtual with First-Time Online ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk


Urology of Central Pennsylvania and ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer are partnering for the first-ever virtual celebration of our annual ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk on Friday, September 25. This inspiring day traditionally encourages and supports local prostate cancer patients, survivors and caregivers.

This year’s event digital gathering will replace the ZERO Cancer Run/Walk that was initially planned as an in-person event, but retain a community feel and spirit of hope with live interviews, performances, unique activities outdoors and more. Specific event details will be released closer to Friday, September 25.

“While COVID-19 is changing how we get together, it is not changing our passion and dedication to support patients and families through this crisis and celebrate community,” said Jamie Bearse, ZERO CEO and President.

The impact of the pandemic has been significant on prostate cancer patients, survivors and caregivers both financially and emotionally. The ZERO Prostate Cancer Run will show love and support to these families during this difficult time.

Registration for the first-ever virtual Harrisburg ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk Celebration is free. Custom event shirts are available for a donation of $40. Registrants are encouraged to fundraise leading up to the event. All funds raised will provide direct support to local prostate cancer patients and families.
