What We Have In Place
  • We have hosted our Summit event for more than 20 years and it is a signature event for us. We will have at least ten team members staffing the event. To help ensure the final product matches our needs, we have prepared:

    -A detailed shot list of photos we are looking for
    -A list of VIPs for photos
    -A schedule for the 2-day shoot
How This Will Help

Our annual ZERO Prostate Cancer Summit on Feb. 26-27 brings patients, survivors, and loved ones to Washington, D.C. to help protect $90M in critical research funding. Several new treatments for advanced prostate cancer have resulted from this funding, which has helped to extend and improve the lives of thousands of patients. Summit attendees meet with their elected officials to share their story and why research is so important in the fight against prostate cancer.
