ZERO – Prostate Cancer Run/Walk 2020

HALO Diagnostics is a proud supporter of ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer, specifically the 5K Run/Walk that will be held virtually on September 19, 2020, in honor of Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.

As its website states, ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer is “the destination for taking action to end prostate cancer and making prostate cancer research a national priority. . . Our mantra to support, educate, and activate is mobilizing a like-minded, passionate, and multigenerational army of advocates across the country to end prostate cancer.”

Prostate Cancer Facts:

  • Every 18 minutes another American man dies from prostate cancer.
  • One in nine American men will have prostate cancer during his lifetime.
  • Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among American men and is the most commonly diagnosed.
  • The American Cancer Society estimates in its Cancer Facts & Figures 2018 report that 164,690 men will be told they have prostate cancer in 2018.
  • Currently, there are nearly 2.9 million American men living with the disease – roughly equal to the population of Chicago.

Early detection and advances in treatment are saving lives! Raising awareness and critical funding contribute to both.
