Volunteers Prepare for Morris Animal Foundation K9 Cancer Walk in April
January 17, 2012
Denver—Join Morris Animal Foundation on Sunday, April 29, for the Morris Animal Foundation K9 Cancer Walk at Elk Grove Regional Park in Elk Grove. The event will benefit the Foundation’s Canine Cancer Campaign, an initiative to fund research to prevent, treat and, ultimately, cure cancer in dogs.
Last year, with help from area volunteers led by Sandy Vilahu, more than 500 participants and more than 260 furry friends rallied to raise more than $70,000 for Morris Animal Foundation and their funding for canine cancer research.
“Cancer is a disease that touches many of us,” said Vilahu, Walk Volunteer Committee chairperson. “Morris Animal Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure, and I am happy to help in that effort by bringing my community together to take a stand against canine cancer.”
Registration is now open. Rally your friends and family, and let’s show our furry best friends that we are on a mission to beat canine cancer. Additional event details, including information about our virtual Sit & Stay option, can be found at www.K9CancerWalk.org.
An estimated 50 percent of all dogs will battle cancer. It is the No. 1 cause of death in dogs over the age of 2. All dog lovers are invited to attend and are encouraged to walk to celebrate the life of their canine best friend or walk in memory of dogs that have lost their battle with canine cancer.
Vendor and sponsorship information is also available on the event website.
