Puppy Up Madison 2017!  Join the Journeys Team

Dogs and people walking in last year's event
For a fourth year, I’m sponsoring a team to walk and raise funds to support the 2 Million Dogs Foundation’s Puppy Up! 2017 Madison. Cancer touches everyone at some point in our lives, whether ourselves, a family member, a friend or a beloved pet. Through events like the Puppy Up! Walk we can make a difference. PuppyUp Foundation is working to build healthier lives through education and research. For more information about the Foundation and its mission, visit puppyup.org

When: 5/7/2017 Sunday 10:00 am registration (schedule)
Where: McKee Farms Park – Fitchburg, WI
Fee : $25.00 , Free – under 14 years old
Event info: Puppy Up! Madison Event  and Tribute Signs

I would love for you to join us and my Journeys team to fight cancer. The Puppy Up! event raises funds for comparative oncology-exploring the cancers that affect humans and canines and how to defeat it. The PuppyUp Foundation awarded a $96,000 grant to the UW Madison School of Veterinary Medicine in 2015 to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of stereotactic radiation for dogs with bone cancer.

PuppyUp’s scientific objectives: Broadening our understanding of the links between human and companion-animal cancer, creating a cross-institutional collaborative platform, developing new approaches to research, and funding translational cancer studies that benefit both pets and people.
