ZERO Kicks Off Prostate Cancer Awareness Month With 16 Run/Walks

WASHINGTON, Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer is hosting 16 run/walk events across the nation during September, Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, to raise funds and awareness to end prostate cancer, a disease that affects one in seven American men.

"Thousands are making a choice for a healthy lifestyle and celebrating Prostate Cancer Awareness Month by walking or running," ZERO CEO Jamie Bearse said. "With the help of our 100-plus local partner network including doctor offices, local charities, and sponsors who come together for our family-friendly run/walk series, we're taking a huge step closer to creating Generation ZERO – the first generation of men free from prostate cancer."

The ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk Series is hosted by ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer and its local partners, such as urology practices and oncology centers, in 34 cities across the U.S. From Baltimore, MD to Napa Valley, CA. The series brings together cancer patients and survivors and those who care about them to save lives and keep families together. The events have a family-friendly focus, and most consist of a 5K run, 1 mile walk, and a Kids Superhero Dash for Dad. National sponsors include Abbvie, Astellas, Medivation, Janssen, Bayer, Millennium, Patient Access Network Foundation, Auxilium, Tolmar, and Hanna Andersson.

New to the series this year is the ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk – Napa. Napa Valley sisters Sarah Dunn, Amy Donaldson, and Julie Memmott founded the event, formerly called the Blue Ribbon Run, to honor three important men in their lives who were affected by prostate cancer. The sisters lost their grandfather and, very recently, their father to advanced stage prostate cancer. They also have an uncle who was recently diagnosed. All three family members were diagnosed at young ages and prostate cancer has drastically changed their lives and the lives of their families.

"Our father's diagnosis motivated me and my sisters to take a stand against prostate cancer once and for all," said Sarah Dunn. "We joined ZERO's Run/Walk series to be a part of a larger movement and raise awareness on a national level during Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and throughout the year."

Even though you are running an agile development process, that doesn’t necessarily mean that your performance testing is being conducted in a truly agile way. Saving performance testing for a “final sprint” before release still treats it like a waterfall development step, with all the cost and risk that comes with that. In this post, we will show you how to make load testing happen early and often by putting SLAs on the agile task board.
