Where the Money Goes

The funds raised from 2018 ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk - Des Moines are invested around the country to provide research for new treatments, free prostate cancer testing, and educate men and families about prostate cancer. No other prostate cancer charity spends more per dollar on programs - more than 85 cents. ZERO puts every donation to good use.
