Caps fans, this year’s Hockey Fights Cancer beneficiary, ZERO – The Project to End Prostate Cancer, is hosting the Dash for Dad 10K race at 8 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 27.

The mission of ZERO – The Project to End Prostate Cancer is to eradicate prostate cancer through awareness, outreach, advocacy and research. The Washington, D.C., metropolitan area leads the country in prostate cancer death rates. Nationwide, a man dies from the disease every 18 minutes. But there is hope – education about prostate cancer risk and access to screenings can save countless lives.

All proceeds from the Dash for Dad 10K will go to prostate research and free screenings in the Washington, D.C., area to those at risk.
