Urology of Virginia is proud to announce the 4th Annual Hampton Roads ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk,
the premier men’s health race series in the country. We are joining almost 40 cities to raise more than $3 million in 2018 to increase prostate cancer research and awareness and provide free screenings in our community.
We hope this letter finds you well. In the spirit and pursuit of better health for all of us, Urology of Virginia invites you to participate with us in the 2018 ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk – Hampton Roads. We are proud to bring this wonderful community event to Virginia Beach and we hope you will join us in the celebration!
The 5K, and 1 mile run/walk and Kids Dash for Dad is set for Sunday, November 18th at 8:00am at the 24th Street Park on the Boardwalk. The event will bring together cancer survivors, athletes, physicians, family and friends to raise awareness for prostate cancer and funds for research, screenings, and patient services. Our goal is to raise $125,000 or more and we need your help to get there!
At the run, we will have a special ZERO HERO area where prostate cancer survivors and their families can relax and enjoy refreshments. In addition, participants who indicate that they are prostate cancer patients or survivors will get a ZERO Prostate Cancer ball cap at the race as well as a special colored shirt.
After the race, we’ll have a post-race party with an awards ceremony, refreshments, and music. Proceeds from the run will benefit ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer, a national prostate cancer nonprofit, learn more at www.zerocancer.org, and locally the Schellhammer Urologic Research Foundation, and the Hampton Roads Prostate Health Forum.
We strongly encourage families and friends to register as teams and participate in honor of their dad, grandpa or loved one. Children are welcome too. We’ll have a Kids Superhero Dash for Dads, and participants 9 and younger will receive a superhero cape. Online registration is at www.zeroprostatecancerrun.org/hamptonroads or you can register by phone at 202-303-3110.
We hope you will join us as we exercise together and promote prostate cancer awareness in our community.
