K9 Cancer Walk

  • Aug 21, 2011 · 8:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Come out for a morning of fun times with your furry friends and help find a cure for canine cancer.  Our dogs are family members, but just like us, our “best friends” can get cancer, too.  Half of all dogs will be affected by cancer in their lives —but together, we can beat this disease. 

Morris Animal Foundation launched the Canine Cancer Campaign to help scientists worldwide prevent, treat and, ultimately, cure cancer in dogs.  The K9 Cancer Walk program raises funds and awareness for the Canine Cancer Campaign, which funds humane research that develops prevention strategies, tests new treatments, establishes tools for cancer researchers and trains new scientists specializing in cancer research.

A head count here is great, but to register for the walk, please visit www.curecaninecancer.org and register.  I'm walking as part of Team MAF, and I invite you all to join the team.  Registration for you and your pooch is $30 prior to August 7, and $35 after that date.  You are also encouraged to raise money for the cause, but it certainly isn't necessary!  My fundraising page is up on the site.

    I hope this is a success...unfortunately...the fee does not fit into my unemployed budget. Great cause ..since I lost three pets to cancer!
