Walking to Cure Canine Cancer

-Jennifer Zhang

Last Saturday we participated in the first ever K9K Walk to Cure Canine Cancer event at Elk Grove Regional Park, Elk Grove, CA. It was in a beautiful location on a beautiful day. Alongside many dog lovers and their beloved 4-legged companions, some living with cancer and some simply supporting the cause, we engaged in 2 walks. Some people held signs showing pictures of their beloved dogs lost to cancer. Listening to their experiences and walking with them, I was sad, encouraged, and inspired!

Altogether we raised over $18,000, all going towards canine cancer research via Morris Animal Foundation. Many people and dogs participated in teams, including Doberman United, of which we're members, the Sacramento Valley Boxer Club, Team Greyhound, and many more.
