The 2018 ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk - Capital Area features a 5K run/walk, 1 mile walk, Kids' Superhero Dash for Dad, and virtual Snooze for Dudes program. The race kicks off with the Kids Superhero Dash for Dad, kids under 9 dress up like their favorite superheroes and we give them capes for their run - it's adorable to see them running for their Dads!

Did you know that it takes almost 75 volunteers to effectively execute each ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk? Volunteers are the key to our success. Volunteers not only work on committees to plan the run/walk, but they also play a key role in working at health fairs, sporting events and wellness fairs in their community to educate men and their families about prostate caner.


Our volunteers are key in engaging the community to get involved with ZERO. ZERO’s volunteers are our boots on the ground to make a powerful impact in their community. They work with our local chapter directors and other committee members to get us one step closer to putting an end to prostate cancer!
