Volunteers

Did you know that it takes almost 75 volunteers to effectively execute each ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk? Volunteers are the key to our success. Volunteers not only work on committees to plan the run/walk, but they also play a key role in working at health fairs, sporting events and wellness fairs in their community to educate men and their families about prostate caner.

Our volunteers are key in engaging the community to get involved with ZERO. ZERO’s volunteers are our boots on the ground to make a powerful impact in their community. They work with our local chapter directors and other committee members to get us one step closer to putting an end to prostate cancer!

FAQs

Q: Should I start a team or join as an individual?

A: If you have a friend or family member joining you, please start a team. If you are attending alone, please join as an individual. There is no minimum requirement for team size.

Q: Is it better to register online or register the morning of the race?

A: There are many advantages to registering before the race. Here are just a couple:

Knowing how many people to expect will help us plan for a better event for everyone. We order all items based on how many people have pre-registered for the event (shirts, water, finish line food, etc.).
Each person that registers will receive a fundraising page within the ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk website. This will give friends and family a place to go where they can donate directly to you online or get a donation form and mail a donation directly to us that will be credited to your page. You can also customize this page with a photo and special message about why you’re participating.

Q: I accidentally registered as an individual and meant to join or start a team. What do I do?

A: No problem! If you would like to be added to a team or start your own team, simply send an email to [email protected] with your name, team name, and what city’s race you’re taking part in.

Q: Online registration is closed. Can I still register?

A: Absolutely! You can register in person during early packet pickup and on race day.

Q: I already registered as a 5K run participant, but want to walk the 1-mile instead. Can I change my registration fee?

A: Absolutely! We can change your registration type, please email [email protected] with your requested changes.

Q: I registered and can no longer participate. Can I get a refund?

A: Unfortunately, we do not offer refunds on registration fees. We can convert your registration fee to a tax-deductible donation.

Q: I want to participate but I’m busy that morning. What options do I have?

A: That’s why we have the virtual Snooze For Dudes! You can register through your local event’s website and have access to all the same tools and resources other registrants have a personal fundraising page, personal fundraising coaching, fundraising incentives, and a special Snooze for Dudes shirt mailed directly to your home.

Fundraising

Q: Is there a fundraising minimum to participate in the run/walk?

A: No. There is no fundraising minimum, but we need your help to end prostate cancer, please consider making a self-donation or raise at least $100. All registered participants and volunteers receive a personal fundraising page, fundraising coaching, and many tools, guides, and other resources to help you.

Race Day

A: No. For the safety of our participants, we do not permit pets on the course or in the spectator area. The only pets that are allowed are service animals.


Q: Are strollers allowed at the race?

A: Yes. We believe a fit family is a happy family and allow strollers on our course. However, we do have some requirements: you must start in the back, you may not weave through packs of runners, and you must always yield the right of way to other runners.


Q: Who is able to get running awards?

A: The top three male finishers, the top three female finishers, and the top three patient/survivor finishers of the 5K run will receive awards.


Q: If I don't pick up my shirt at the race, can I get one mailed?

A: No, unfortunately due to the expense, shirts cannot be mailed. Your family or friends are able to pick up your shirt at packet pick-up or on race day for you.

Q: Can I pick up packets for my family and friends?

A: Yes. We do allow runners to pick up bibs and shirts for their friends. Please note that shirts cannot be mailed.

Q: What happens if it rains on the day of the race?

A: While every effort will be made to conduct the event, the race will be postponed or canceled if we judge the weather to be hazardous. Unfortunately, entry fees will not be refunded if the event is canceled.
