ZERO – Prostate Cancer Run/Walk – Asheville
Aug 24 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Carrier Park

Online registration will open soon!

The desire we had to engage in this fight? ZERO. We’d gladly be anywhere else.

But now that we’re here, there’s zero chance of us giving up.

We are patients, past and present – unwilling to back down. We are friends and family, loved ones of those engaged in the fight to the end. We are employees and professionals, tired of seeing the people we care about suffer. Our passion is making prostate cancer a national priority and creating Generation ZERO – the first generation of men free from prostate cancer.

Our Run/Walk is our commitment made manifest. It is the time we come together, raising funds and sharing hope to declare one number above others: ZERO.

Registration:
Online registration will open soon.

Courses:
The 5K will run in and around Carrier Park, on the French Broad River Greenway and its beautiful surroundings. This is a very friendly course for both runners and walkers.
