Seasons in which we offer activities (select "All seasons" for all): 
It began with a promise to raise awareness of canine cancer one mile, one city, and one person at a time. Luke Robinson, with his dogs has walked 4,000 miles across America to fulfill the promise he made to his dog Malcolm who died from this horrible disease. The PuppyUp Foundation was formed because of the promise Robinson made years ago, to find out why dogs are getting cancer and why they are getting the same cancers that humans get. Through the PuppyUp Walks, we are building one of the largest pet and people cancer communities in the world. Thousands are walking with us to bring awareness to comparative oncology,the study of cancer in pets and people. The PuppyUp Foundation is committed to discovering the common links between canine and human cancers and the causes of these cancers through comparative oncology research.
