2013 Elk Grove K9 Cancer Walk

K9 Cancer Walk 2013

 

Meet at the Golden Retriever Meetup Booth


It's that time again - time to get out in force and bite cancer back!  We all probably know a human or pet that has lost their fight with cancer.

Sadly this past year we have lost at least three member goldens  to cancer; and our team will be walking in their memory, as well as those lost in previous years.

Bailey (13)

The work that is funded by the Morris Animal Foundation helps our dogs and our humans survive a little longer, survive a little better, and with continued research maybe just maybe future generations will be able to avoid it all together.

Let's do everything we can to show cancer we will not sit back and take it.

Here is the link to our team: Golden Nuggets Sacramento and Beyond Golden Retriever Meetup.

    Hi everyone! PJ and I had a great time at the walk! Special thanks to Cathy and Doug who coordinated our team! You did a great job! I will pass on your thanks to Parker Pup who we are just in love with! I am so honored Jennifer and her father drove all the way from Oregon to do this walk with us again! If you are interested in following Parker, you can find him on FaceBook by searching on "ParkerPup." His web site is: www.parkerpup.com - He is a therapy dog for cancer patients and his dad, Dan, is a cancer survivor. He also does agility, acting and modeling, but his goal in life is to support the fight on cancer and do everything possible to promote awareness. PJ will be having surgery soon, but after she has recovered, I hope we can participate in more of the Meetup Group events. We would very much enjoy getting to know more of you! Thank you for making this such a special day! Bless you all! - Trish & PJ

    Hello All - I had to stop a moment and thank all of you for your support of this worthy cause. I am so proud of this team of golden people for stepping up and giving so generously. Parker Pup, a new member of our K9 Cancer Walk Team did an amazing job and we are so proud you chose to be a part of our team.

    Let's start today raising awareness and money for the cause for next year's walk - Congratulations WAG for your record breaking donations!

    It was so good to see you all that were able to attend. Extra special thanks to Doug and Cathy for a booth well done. Many thanks, Shirlee

    • shirlee t.

      I'm with you - let's tell everyone we know, put posters at your vet office, dog parks, petfood stores, get sponsors from your vet, groomer, etc. If you lost a dog or a friend lost a dog to cancer and you can't come to the walk - make a "memorial" donation to the team. Let your voice be heard that cancer is NOT going to win.
