WHO WILL YOU BE RUNNING OR WALKING FOR IN 2017?
Making a Difference at the 2017 ZERO Prostate Cancer Challenge – Sunday, September 24th
In the eleventh year of the ZERO Prostate Cancer Challenge (ZPCC), thousands of men, women and children will be joining Chesapeake Urology physicians, staff, vendors, volunteers and friends, to run or walk for someone they know and love who has been affected by prostate cancer. Some run for dads, others for husbands, brothers, uncles, co-workers and friends.
Approximately 180,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer this year; that’s one new case every 2.5 minutes. That is why, for more than a decade, Chesapeake Urology’s signature cause has been ending prostate cancer.
Since the inception of the ZERO Prostate Cancer Challenge/Baltimore in 2006, Chesapeake Urology has raised more than $3.5 million to fund free prostate cancer screenings for more than 8,000 Maryland men, to fully endow a prostate cancer research scholarship, and for advocacy and patient assistance programs.
We need your help to reach our 2017 goal of raising $550,000. Please help us meet – and exceed – our goal by donating and registering for the 2017 ZPCC HERE! Thank you!
