K9 Cancer Walk – Join us April 24th for the 2nd Annual K9 Cancer Walk
More than six million dogs are diagnosed with cancer each year with half of all dogs being affected by cancer—but together, we can beat this disease. Join us on April 24th at beautiful Elk Grove Regional Park in Elk Grove, 11 miles South of Sacramento and walk for a cure. 100% of all walk registration fees, vendor fees and donations go directly to support Morris Animal Foundation's Canine Cancer Campaign to fund research for canine cancer, early detection methods, effective treatments and ultimately a cure!
Walk registration and check in 8:30-9:45 am. The walk starts at 10 am, with a short 3 K Lake walk and a 6 K park perimeter trail walk, do one or both. After the walks, speakers will discuss canine cancer, prevention, wellness and other topics. Learn the facts about canine cancer and how to examine your dog for early signs of cancer.

The K9 Cancer Walk has exceeded $10,000! We're 1/3 of a way towards our goal. Congratulations for being a part of that!
By participating in the K9 Cancer Walk, you are an inspiration in the fight against canine cancer. Morris Animal Foundation (MAF) thanks you for your commitment to raising funds for our Canine Cancer Campaign by starting a team and encouraging your friends, family and community to participate and/or donate in support of your team.
Here are some tips to reaching your team goals:
- Encourage your team members to establish personal goals and use the tools provided by our Web site to reach them. Make sure your team members update their personal pages with photos of the dogs that fulfill their lives or those that they’re walking in memory of and e-mail as many people as they can.
- Start a competition among team members to see who can raise the most money for your team.
- Choose another team with which you can have a friendly competition.
- Visit local pet friendly businesses you support, such as your veterinarian, groomer, pet food supplier, dog park association, etc., and inform them about the Walk. Encourage them to join your team or raise money toward your team goal.
- Look for local companies that can become your team sponsor and ask them to match any funds your team raises.
Another way to get involved: MAF’s K9 Cancer Walk Volunteer Committee has put together a baseball fundraiser in support of the K9 Cancer Walk in Elk Grove:

Wowwwweee! That would be GREAT!
Of course you can go without Jack, I'm sure there will be your pick of loaner dogs!
You can register up to the day of the walk, doesn't matter.
Yes, I believe that others will actually be there too!
Yipee! Hope you can make it!

Howdy, I don't know what happened to our earlier post, but the Petite Princess will be there with her wagon and servants in tow!
We should be easy to spot, very cute, gold, 3 legged dog in black harness with bling, red wagon and 2 servants suppling her every need!
Oh yeah, we just got a $75.00 check from one of my co workers who lost a fur baby to cancer.
Take care, the chauffeur
Hey guys, sorry about the post, we're working on some glitches...
Meanwhile, pawesome! Thank you so much for helping to raise money for Morris and being there at the walk! Oh how we wish we could be there too. I'll be a great day for sure.
