BIRMINGHAM, Ala., May 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its effort to educate and empower men in the fight against prostate cancer, Vituro Health is proud to announce that it has entered into a partnership with ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer (ZERO), the leading national nonprofit organization with the mission to end prostate cancer, as a National Run/Walk sponsor.
"Vituro Health's goal is simple: to empower, educate and provide comprehensive care to the one in seven men who will be affected by prostate cancer during his lifetime," said Clete Walker, CEO of Vituro Health. "For 20 years, ZERO has been the leading national nonprofit organization with the mission to end prostate cancer, so the partnership seemed a natural fit to continue our efforts to advocate for patients and create awareness in the community."
As a National Run/Walk sponsor, Vituro Health will have the opportunity to share their concierge medical services and advanced treatment options with the more than 20,000 participants the events see annually.
"We are proud to partner with such an established and well respected organization, and know it will strengthen our collective efforts to accomplish one goal: save lives from prostate cancer," said Clete.
This year, as ZERO's National Run/Walk series celebrates 10 years of raising awareness and funds for prostate cancer, the series will visit nearly 40 communities across the nation, uniting survivors, patients, caregivers, families and businesses in the fight to end prostate cancer.
"Virtually every prostate cancer case is different. That's why it's critical to have a vast array of treatments to put patients on the best pathway to beat this terrible disease," said ZERO CEO Jamie Bearse. "We're proud to partner with Vituro Health and its like-minded endeavors to end prostate cancer and equip patients with the important information needed to make life-saving decisions."
