Greetings Iggy Lovers!
A member of the Morris Animal Foundation has requested that I send this out to you all. It's a great cause and looks like a lot of fun!
Dogs are a part of our families, but our "best friends" can get
sick, just like us. Join Morris Animal Foundation (MAF) on
Sunday, October 10, 2010, at Vasona Lake Park, in Los Gatos to
celebrate your best friend or to honor the memory of your best
friend at the 1st Annual K9 Cancer Walk benefiting MAF's Canine
Cancer Campaign. This is one of a series of walks in 2010 that
MAF will host around the nation to help dogs enjoy longer,
healthier, cancer-free lives.
Register online at www.K9CancerWalk.org. Register by September
26th to benefit from the early registration fee of $30 for
adults and $15 for kids 10 and under. This year's walk includes
options for a .5 mile or 1.25 mile walk, an canine health
educational programs and opportunity drawings. All walkers will
receive t-shirts and bandannas for their dogs. Teams will also
have a chance to compete for spirit and participation awards.
All proceeds will benefit Morris Animal Foundation's Canine
Dog lovers from around the country can also participate by
choosing the Sit & Stay for a Cure option to virtually
participate in the Los Gatos K9 Cancer Walk. You can help dogs
enjoy longer, healthier lives from the comfort of your couch!
"Our goal is to raise awareness of this epidemic and to provide
a means of coming together as a community for dog owners whose
lives have been affected by canine cancer," says Tish Czachor,
MAF's canine cancer events manager. "Each walk will bring us
one step closer in finding a cure for our best friends." The
walk features a panel of experts speaking on the topics of
canine cancer research and treatment, early detection, canine
wellness, fitness and other topics.
Through the Canine Cancer Campaign, Morris Animal Foundation is
creating a healthier tomorrow for dogs. Research funded through
the campaign will help develop prevention strategies, test new
treatments, establish tools for cancer researchers and train
new scientists specializing in cancer research. By supporting
this campaign, you can help to one day cure this disease that
affects so many of our best friends.
Please help us spread the word about the walk by sharing this email with interested dog lovers! Thanks!
