Harrity Recognized at ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer Bold for Blue Awards

ZERO — The End of Prostate Cancer is the nation’s largest non-profit organization dedicated to ending prostate cancer. With research advances, educational resources, and comprehensive support for prostate cancer patients, ZERO has improved the lives of thousands of men and their families over the past twenty years.

Harrity 4 Charity is a proud partner of ZERO and applauds their perseverance in eradicating the disease, which impacts so many lives worldwide. This cause is particularly meaningful to us, as Harrity Controller Sandy Maxey’s own father passed away from prostate cancer.

Last month, ZERO held its Bold for Blue Award Ceremony in recognition of those individuals who have made a bold impact in the fight against prostate cancer through their incredible fundraising efforts. Harrity & Harrity, LLP was honored to receive an award in the Top Fundraisers category.

Sandy Maxey, in honor of her late father, accepted the award on behalf of Harrity 4 Charity.

“Zero protects federal prostate cancer research funding for new treatments and diagnostics so that we can continue to work towards a cure. I am proud to work for a firm that supports such an important cause, and honored to have been recognized at the Bold for Blue Awards,” said Sandy.

Harrity 4 Charity Supports the ZERO Prostate Cancer Summit

Harrity & Harrity Controller Sandra Maxey attended the ZERO Prostate Cancer Summit, which was held February 24-26. ZERO, an organization focused on securing federal funding for prostate cancer research, hosted the three-day event for attendees to meet with survivors, patients, caregivers and family members who are committed to fighting prostate cancer.

By advocating for federal funding, ZERO hopes to help the hundreds of men and families impacted by this disease. Now more than ever, it is critical to preserve and advance cancer research, patient care and access to affordable health care.

The stories from survivors at ZERO made an impact. “Hearing from people who have fought and won the battle against this disease inspires us to keep pushing forward by raising awareness, speaking out, and finding a cure,” said Ms. Maxey. “We need to keep pressure on Capitol Hill to provide the much-needed funding and policies that will eliminate prostate cancer.”
