Online Registration is now closed. Registration will be available at the Packet Pick-up Sessions listed below as well as on race day morning.

One in seven American men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime. That's one in seven fathers, sons, husbands, brothers, partners, and friends. No one wants the men in their lives to be faced with this disease. You can be part of saving lives and keeping families together. Take the challenge and join the movement to end prostate cancer by joining Urology of Central Pennsylvania at the ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk - Harrisburg on Friday, September 23, 2016 at City Island in Harrisburg. Your participation and fundraising helps fund tomorrow’s treatments, today. Sign up now and help declare one number above others: ZERO.

The ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk – Harrisburg features a 5K run/walk and 1 mile walk.

ZERO is proud to partner with Urology of Central Pennsylvania to end prostate cancer. The funds raised from ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk - Harrisburg are invested around the country to provide research for new treatments, free prostate cancer testing, and educate men and families about prostate cancer.
