Indianapolis dog lovers walk to fight K9 Cancer

More than 200 people started their engines and took to the streets to walk in the fourth annual Indy K9 Cancer Walk on Sunday, October 2. Nearly $25,000 was raised to help fund studies at Morris Animal Foundation that will lead to advances in the detection, prevention and treatment of canine cancer.

A beautiful autumn day greeted the walkers as they strolled through White River State Park. The top fundraising team was Team GRRACE followed by MedVet Indianapolis and Team Blondie (last year’s top fundraising team). Dr. Michael Lucroy, team captain of MedVet Indianapolis and a veterinary medical oncologist, took the honors as top individual fundraiser.

“We had a great turnout this year for the walk,” said Kate O’Brien, Director of Events for Morris Animal Foundation. “As always, this event is the culmination of months of hard work by our dedicated volunteers. It’s because of their passion to fight cancer that this event was a success.”

If you weren’t able to join us for the Indy K9 Cancer Walk, you can still make your contribution and help fight pet cancer today!
