This year, The Oregon Clinic’s urologists joined efforts to sponsor ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer’s annual run and walk, which supports the organization’s mission of ending prostate cancer. Thirty-two employees and their family members participated in the event.
Portland joined over 35 communities across the US to host the walk at Elizabeth Caruthers Park on June 12. The goal of the event was to raise awareness and help the more than 2,000 men in Oregon who will be diagnosed with prostate cancer this year.
This year was the first time the event was held in Portland. The over $65,000 raised from this year’s event will be used in Oregon to assist prostate cancer support groups, research at local universities, and national efforts to provide research for new treatments, patient support resources, and to educate men and families about prostate cancer.
