SUPPORT Prostate Cancer Patients During COVID-19

COVID-19 Event Postponed to 2021:

Due to rising concerns regarding the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), ZERO has made the decision to reschedule the Knoxville Run/Walk for Fall 2021. We will update you once a new date has been selected.

Due to the gravity of the present global public health issue, ZERO must do our part to act responsibly and protect our community. The safety of our participants, volunteers, community, and staff is our top priority.

Your Community Has Come Together to Raise

To Help Prostate Cancer Patients and Families

The Virtual ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk Celebration is a time to come together, raise funds and sharing hope to declare one number above others: ZERO. Your participation makes a real difference in the lives of men and families fighting prostate cancer, especially during the COVID-19 crisis. Your presence at this virtual celebration will show the love to patients, and help provide emotional and financial supports for men and families in their time of need.

The funds raised from Knoxville Run/Walk will provide support to patients through financial and emotional support programs and resources. With COVID-19, these funds are more critical than ever, as they’ll help in-need patients who are struggling through this crisis. YOU can make a difference for patients in your area! At ZERO, 86 cents of every dollar donated goes directly into our life-saving programs. No prostate cancer charity is more efficient at turning donations into a tangible impact in your local community, and we're the only ones with a best-possible 4 star rating from Charity Navigator.

With the rise of COVID-19, the nation’s only event series solely dedicated to prostate cancer knew that canceling the series was not an option, as the prostate cancer community needed more support than ever before. Every day, COVID-19 poses many challenges for vulnerable and immunocompromised cancer patients. ZERO’s virtual events will offer a beacon of hope and a way to make a difference for patients and their families who are struggling medically, financially, and emotionally.
