Behind skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men. About one man in every seven will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. For Oak Park Ice Arena’s Operations Manager, Derek Eisler, the diagnosis was shocking and life changing.
Eisler, former San Jose Sharks Assistant Coach, looked for a support group to help him through this rough time but found nothing. He then turned to the NHL for help and found ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer (learn more by clicking HERE). Eisler has helped bring the group’s fundraising walk to the San Joaquin Valley in hopes it will inspire more men to get checked regularly and raise money to go toward ending prostate cancer.

Derek Eisler, ZERO — The End of Prostate Cancer, and Valley Cancer Medical Center, will hold a 5K walk/run on Saturday to raise awareness and funds to end prostate cancer. The event will begin at 8:30 a.m. at Valley Cancer Medical Center, 1138 Norman Drive in Manteca.
