SEA Blue 2021
We would like to thank everyone who supported and took part in the SEA Blue 2021 Virtual Prostate Cancer Walk and Run! With your help we were able to surpass our fundraising goal by almost $25K! All of these funds will be used to help provide Support, Education, Advocacy and Awareness at no charge to those affected by prostate cancer. We also thank our co-presenter, UroPartners, and our generous sponsors. SEA Blue was a special day for attendees. We had people walking and running with us virtually all over the country, and from as far away as England and Hawaii! It was wonderful being able to gather via the Charge Running App and be together to share the experience, pictures, run results, and comments of love and support. View photos of the event at:

Veterans Survey
Veterans have an incidence rate for prostate cancer that is twice that of the general population. ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer is committed to bringing the Veterans community the resources, tools, and education needed to fight and detect prostate cancer even in its earliest stages. If you are a Veteran, please consider providing your feedback in a survey to help ZERO provide the most impactful programs to improve the lives of men and families. ZERO will use this information to help make decisions on how to best meet the educational and awareness needs of Veterans who are at risk of or have been diagnosed with prostate cancer. It may also be used for policy research purposes. This survey is anonymous unless you decide to provide your contact information at the end of the survey. The survey should take between10-20 minutes to complete and it will only be open until October 15th. To take the survey, please visit:
