Cancer is a major cause of death in dogs. It takes a devastating toll on pets, their families, and the people who provide their care. There is a need for funds to advance their knowledge and provide treatment options. We invite you to participate in this walk and are pleased to participate this year in "The Brandi Cancer Challenge Fund". The family of Brandi, a wonderful dog treated at Purdue, has generously offered to match all donations this year. Take a walk with those near and dear to your heart and support cancer research and know this year your donation is worth twice as much. Every dog is a guest of honor- those walking with you a those in your heart...
