RAIN OR SHINE – In rainy weather we will still have the picnic under the pavilion at the park.
Participants are asked to obtain pledges and turn in donations at the park. Prizes will be awarded to three people with the most money raised in donations. Other great raffle prizes will also be available.
We established The Kate Koogler Canine Cancer Fund, Inc, a non-profit 501 (C)(3) organization, to raise money for bone cancer research and to honor a once in a lifetime dog.
My husband Robin and I lost our very best friend Kate to chondrosarcoma –
a form of bone cancer on September 16, 2002.
Kate was an awesome dog. She loved to go for a motorcycle ride being pulled behind Robin’s bike in a trailer custom made for her. We decided a ride in her honor was a great way to have her spirit live on and hopefully find a way to prevent others from being affected by this horrible disease.
The proceeds from The Kate Ride will help to fund studies into the causes and treatments of bone related cancers. Researchers are looking at existing cases of naturally occurring cancer in dogs to determine how genes impact the development of cancer and why certain breeds are over represented in cases of bone related cancers. It is our sincere and genuine hope that the research being done at these centers will give us information that can change the future of canine bone cancer.
