Our friends at 2 Dogs 2000 Miles made history on Friday September 18, when over 100 pawrents and 40 dogs came from 13 different states to march on Washington, for the first annual Canine Cancer Caucus.
They came to support Luke, Hudson and Murphy, and to raise awareness of the canine cancer epidemic.
During his week in Washington, Luke presented to congressional representatives to urge them to fund canine oncology studies that will benefit both dogs and humans alike.
Neither rain nor a last minute route change by the National Park Service could stop them.
Luke Robinson, founder of 2Dogs 2000 Miles said
“We had a very nice turnout for our first canine cancer caucus. It was very picturesque walk – over the Potomac, around the Lincoln Memorial, next to the reflecting pool to remember the ones we’ve lost to cancer, then past the Washington Monument.
It was very lovely symbolic walk.”
