Lace up your sneakers and join us in the race to end prostate cancer!

WASHINGTON, Feb. 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- DASH FOR DAD, the premier prostate cancer race series in the U.S., is a heartfelt tight-knit community event that brings together athletes, cancer survivors, physicians, caregivers, family members and friends.  Proceeds from each 10K race are used to provide free prostate cancer testing for men in the local community of the event.  

ZERO – The Project to End Prostate Cancer with sponsors from across the country has grown the DASH FOR DAD and its partner races – the Great Prostate Cancer Challenge – to include 11 cities and an expected 5,000 runners competing in 2010.

The DASH FOR DAD or partnering Great Prostate Cancer Challenge 5K will be held in the following cities during September, known as "National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month":

  • Baltimore, MD
  • Buffalo, NY
  • Columbus, OH
  • Harrisburg, PA
  • Indianapolis, IN
  • Kansas City, MO
  • Long Island, NY
  • Memphis, TN
  • Nashville, TN
  • Orlando, FL
  • Washington, DC metro area (Alexandria, VA)

Since the national race series began in 2008, more than $1 million has been raised to promote prostate cancer awareness, early detection and research.  Many runners create teams and collect monetary pledges from family and friends to boost funding for local prostate cancer services.

"DASH FOR DAD elevates prostate cancer awareness to a broader nationwide level," said ZERO's CEO Skip Lockwood.  "We all know someone who is impacted by this most commonly diagnosed cancer among men, striking one in every six. That's why we must do all that we can to put an end to this horrible disease."
