K-9s Against Cancer 5k/ 1 mile fun run slated for Oct. 10th – you’re invited!
This year, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. For many, their pets become co-survivors, helping them cope. But did you know cancer is the number one killer of our canine companions?
Born from the desire to celebrate survivors of both canine and breast cancer, cherish the memories of those we have lost, and honor the spectacular therapeutic power of the human/ animal bond, K-9s Against Cancer (formerly called K-9s for the Cure) is an annual dog-friendly 5K fun run/1 mile walk.
This family-oriented day of festivities will feature music, food, games, giveaways, demonstrations and more! Net proceeds will be split equally among three great causes: Susan G.Komen Foundation -Denver, CSU’s Animal Cancer Center and The Bow Wow Buddies Foundation. Funds raised will support local breast cancer research and education efforts, canine cancer research and treatment at CSU, and local and national animal welfare programs.
Date: Saturday, October 10th, 2009 (rain or shine)
Location: Stapleton’s Central Park, Denver (Registration is at MLK Boulevard and Beeler St.)
Each participant receives a FREE race t-shirt for themselves, and a FREE bandana, 24oz portable bowl and designer leash bag for their pup! Create a personal fundraising page to collect pledges – top fundraisers will receive great prizes!
