The Mutt March - June 11, 2011

 We would like to invite you to participate in The Mutt March 5K Dog Walk on Saturday, June 11, 2011! Join the Veterinary Oncology Center Team and walk with us for a great cause! For us it is not just a dog walk, it is a walk of friendship and hope, of fighting hard and celebrating the good days. It is a walk of remembering those who have passed. So bring your best friend along, 4-legged or human and walk with us – together we can make the difference!

 You can find details about our team at the following website: To join us, register for the walk, then assign yourself to the Veterinary Oncology Team. If you cannot participate in the walk, you can still make a pledge for our team if you would like.

This 5K walk begins in the McCollum Park and follows the scenic North Creek trail south to the Mill Creek Town Center, looping back to the finish line. For those that prefer a more leisurely stroll, there is a shorter walk that travels around the perimeter of the park, through Adoption Alley to the finish line. In addition to the walk, there will be lots of fun activities: the Fantastic Flying Disk Dogs, fly ball demonstration, pet photography, a dog costume contest, scavenger hunt for walk participants, search and rescue dog demonstration and much more.

 The Mutt March raises money to provide funding to worthy organizations. For 2011, they have selected Chase Away K9 Cancer Foundation and Pennies for Puppies and Ponies. 100% of the funds raised by Chase Away K9Cancer Foundation go directly to The American College of Veterinary Internal medicine (ACVIM) Foundation. The ACVIM Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in 2000 to support research in veterinary medicine. Through Chase Away K9 Cancer Foundation, your contributions help fund research, education, advocacy and service, leading to the primary goal of healthier and longer lives for animals.

 We hope to see you there!

 Best regards,
