PuppyUp, Madison is excited to share this second annual event in our own community. Part of a national organization, Madison's efforts raised over $86,000 last year, and is already ahead of those numbers in 2015.
It began with a promise to raise awareness of canine cancer one mile, one city, and one person at a time. Luke Robinson, with his dogs has walked 4,000 miles across America to fulfill the promise he made to his dog Malcolm who died from this horrible disease.
The PuppyUp Foundation was formed because of the promise Robinson made years ago, to find out why dogs are getting cancer and why they are getting the same cancers that humans get.
Through the PuppyUp Walks, the organizations through the country are building one of the largest pet and people cancer communities in the world. Thousands are walking to bring awareness to comparative oncology, the study of cancer in pets and people.
Join us for a 2 mile walk to promote awareness of canine cancer and fundraise for cancer research to benefit both pets and people.
