Put on your sneakers, grab a leash, your pup, your family, a friend and walk, run or jog a mile to raise funds for a great cause! In response to COVID-19, Canines-N-Kids’ 4th annual Two By Four Race Against Childhood & Canine Cancer has gone virtual and global. The race will begin in September during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and end in October. The month-long Dog Jog & Fun Run one-mile format gives two and four-legged athletes a way to Crush Cancer @ Both Ends of the Leash—on their own schedule. All net proceeds will support cutting-edge research in the cancers that kids and pet dogs BOTH develop. The event will feature prizes and medals.
September 12-October 12, 2020 Get involved from anywhere – on the treadmill, on vacation, or around the neighborhood.
Costs $25. Participants register online at https://caninesnkids.org/two-by-four-race.html to become a fundraiser, start a team, walk their dog, snap a selfie walking the dog, and submit a photo. Registration includes t-shirt (mailed after the race), a bandana (if participating with your pup) and a printable race bib.
Two and four legged runners and walkers that want to help find a cure for cancer.
Cancer is the leading cause of disease-related childhood death in the US and also claims the lives of 47 percent of dogs. Kids and dogs develop similar and even the same cancers such as brain cancer, osteosarcoma, lymphoma and leukemia. The problems inherent in designing and implementing pediatric oncology clinical trials coupled with scant resources makes finding a cure difficult for both. Canines-N-Kids Foundation is a nonprofit committed to finding a cure to the devastating cancers that both develop by advancing comparative oncology, the study of similar cancers.
