“Puppy Up!” for canine cancer this weekend

Posted By elaine on November 4, 2010

Cancer is the number one cause of death in dogs. One out of every three dogs will get cancer and 50% of those will die. That is why this Sunday might be the most important walk you ever take with your dog.

The first ever, ,“2 Million Dogs, “Puppy Up!” walk to benefit canine cancer research will be Sunday November 7th.  The Colorado walk will be in Fort Collins, and it is really special because founder Luke Robinson will be here in Colorado for the event.

The cause all started with a promise to raise awareness of canine cancer one mile, one city, and one person at time. Earlier this year Luke Robinson with his two dogs walked 2000 miles from Austin to Boston to fulfill the promise he made to his dog Malcolm who died from this horrible disease. The walk was dubbed “2 Dogs, 2000 Miles” and Robinson and his “Fuzzybutts” got a lot of media attention.

Because of this, 2 Million Dogs was formed with the belief that if 2 dogs can walk 2000 miles to bring awareness to cancer surely 2 million dogs can walk 2 miles. The Fort Collins walk will benefits the study of canine cancer and comparative oncology.

This is important to me because I lost my own Bernese Mountain Dog, Baggins to malignant histiocytosis , so join me and be a part of history this November 7th as thousands in cities all across America join in on the promise to bring awareness to cancer.

Sign up now for the Inaugural 2 Million Dogs Puppy Up! Walk in Fort Collins… there will never be another first time like this to Puppy Up! against cancer.  We look forward to feet and paws on the ground!
