ZERO's Heroes is an initiative aimed to unite the prostate cancer community, help our voices be heard, and take action to end prostate cancer. Our heroes are men who are diagnosed with prostate cancer and identify as survivors or patients. We want to recognize these men at the Run/Walk by honoring them with light blue race shirts and hats during our event.

Caregivers are heroes too! Caregivers wear many hats to take care of the men with prostate cancer in their lives. We respect what they do to support a man with prostate cancer and recognize caregivers for their important role during the event and provide them with a special sash to wear. Sashes can be picked up at registration.  

Be sure to give a special shout out on race day to patients/survivors and their caregivers!


Don’t forget to pick up your in honor of or in memory of bibs! Stop by the registration table to pick them up and showcase who you are walking or running for! 


Little ones can help end prostate cancer, too! Kids nine and under are encouraged to dress as their favorite superhero on race day to remind their heroes - Dad, Grandpa, and other male role models - to take charge of their health! The kids will participate in a short dash on race day and receive superhero capes. 


Stick around for the family-friendly post-race celebration. Participants will receive tech shirts, free food, and the opportunity to connect with others who are impacted by prostate cancer.
