Largest Men's Health Event Series In U.S. Formed, Kicks Off April 28

WASHINGTON, March 29, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- More than 60 events nationwide have united under the same banner for one cause.

Called the ZERO Prostate Cancer Challenge (ZPCC), the new series is comprised of run/walks, golf tournaments and teams at top endurance events. The ZPCC, managed by ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer (a national 501c3 charity), raises awareness and funds to save lives from the most commonly diagnosed non-skin cancer among American men.

"Thousands are making a choice for a healthy lifestyle by walking, running, cycling and playing golf to help end prostate cancer," ZERO CEO Jamie Bearse said. "Building a movement to defeat such a dreaded disease takes teamwork. We're extremely grateful to the 100-plus local partners like doctor offices, local charities and sponsors for coming together to begin this effort."

The ZERO Prostate Cancer Challenge event series is broken down into: ZERO Prostate Cancer Run, ZERO Prostate Cancer Golf and ZERO Prostate Cancer Endurance. Whether you're a triathlete, avid golfer or just like to take a leisurely stroll around the block, there is a way for you to get involved in a city near you.

ZERO Prostate Cancer Run brings together the successful DASH FOR DAD race series, the Great Prostate Cancer Challenge race series and several other popular local races into one program with run/walk events in more than three dozen cities across the nation, from large cities like Washington, DC and Los Angeles, to small towns like Lancaster, PA.  Hosted by many urology practices and oncology centers, the ZERO Prostate Cancer Run brings together athletes, cancer patients and survivors, physicians, caretakers, family members and friends in the fight to end prostate cancer. The events are family-friendly, and most consist of a 5K run and a 1-mile walk.

ZERO Prostate Cancer Golf joins together ZERO's annual Know Your Score celebrity golf tournament in Myrtle Beach, SC with more than a half-dozen events formerly managed by the Prostate Awareness Research Foundation (PAR for Life). In January, PAR for Life merged with ZERO, with its Founder and President Evan Denhart joining ZERO's executive team.

"I'm very excited that the PAR for Life golf series is becoming part of the ZERO Prostate Cancer Challenge," said Denhart. "I think this is a tremendous opportunity to begin to unify the movement and solidify ZERO as the leader in awareness for prostate cancer. Together we can end it."
