Race Preview: 2018 ZERO Prostate Cancer 5K Run/Walk (Portland)

The 2018 ZERO Prostate Cancer 5K run/walk returns to Portland on Sunday, June 10th on the South Waterfront. There’s something for everyone, with a 5K run or walk, 1 mile walk, Kids’ Superhero Dash for Dad, and virtual Snooze for Dudes program. ZERO has partnered with the Oregon Urological Society to end prostate cancer and the proceeds from this event are invested around the country to provide research for new treatments, free prostate cancer testing, and educate men and families about prostate cancer.

There are many ways to get involved: you can register as a team (or visit the website to join a team), participate as an individual, or just simply donate. After the race, there is a family-friendly post-race celebration. Also, run/walk participants will receive race shirts, free food and prizes, and the opportunity to connect with others who are impacted by prostate cancer.

This event is dog and stroller friendly so bring the whole family for this FUNdraising event!
