180 Medical Takes Steps for ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk

Last weekend in Portland, OR, ZERO Prostate Cancer held one of their Run/Walk events at Elizabeth Caruthers Park. When they can, our employees love a chance to get out in their respective communities and give back. So not only did we sponsor the event, but our 180 Medical employees in the local area jumped on board to attend and participate in this great cause, which is close to our hearts because so many of our customers have been affected by prostate cancer. In fact, according to the statistics provided by ZERO, one in eight American men will have prostate cancer in their lifetime.

It was a beautiful, sunny day in the Pacific Northwest, and our employees Kelly, Breena, Julio, and Jesse all had a great time getting out in the fresh air to walk, run, and have some fun with everyone, all united in a single cause to end prostate cancer. ZERO is a national nonprofit organization that works to find a cure for prostate cancer as well as offer education and support to affected men and their families.

Many prostate cancer survivors were in attendance, and a few of them talked about their personal stories. There were fun activities, and even a children’s race, where every one of them got a superhero cape at the end. All in all, it was a really amazing day, and we’re proud of our employees who got to take part in the event.
