Strutting Around–It is Fall After All
Happy Fall everyone! It is such a lovely time of year, and, at least in our opinion, a little bit slower paced than the rest of the year! There are so many sights and scents and sounds to savor in the fall–I bet your dog loves this time of year too!
Every fall FETCH a Cure hosts a pet cancer awareness walk called “Mutt Strutt” that aims to raise funds for Companions in Crisis–our financial assistance program for families who need cancer treatment for their pets. This year’s walk will be at Deep Run Park on October 26th. Dogs are encouraged and we look forward to seeing all of them, but, we are always extra thrilled to see the survivors! Every year many dogs who are battling cancer, or who have been through the battle join us for the one mile walk to show their support for what we do. Many of our participating teams are families who have benefited from our CIC fund and use the opportunity to give back to the organization–but, many are just animal lovers like we all are, who want to lend a helping hand.
If you are interested in getting involved with FETCH a Cure, this is a marvelous opportunity. Through our website, you can start your own fundraising page as an individual, or, create a team, and help collect donations from your own family, friends, neighbors and coworkers. We have fabulous prizes for individuals and teams that raise the most for Mutt Strutt; but, we both know the real prize is always the happy grins and wagging tails and pet community that comes together to support the strides being made in pet cancer education, awareness and treatment. We are also looking for volunteers to help “behind the scenes” to make the day a great success. If you would like more information on helping us set up and host the Mutt Strutt, please email firstname.lastname@example.org!
Please come out and enjoy a beautiful fall day with us. The day of the walk will include all sorts of pet-centric vendors, a food truck, an apple cider stand with handmade pet treats, activities for kids and dogs and, of course, a beautiful one mile walk around the lake–to absorb the colors of changing leaves, the crisp fall air and the shared energy and strength, directed at one great cause. Register to join us, today!
We look forward to seeing you–and your best friend!
