I love to find out about a person or a pet that is sent on a journey by his or her beliefs. Brave and admirable, it makes us all want to do better with whatever we tackle.
2 Dogs 2000 Miles is a walk from Austin to Boston for all those touched by cancer. Luke Robinson began this walk in 2008 in honor of his dog, Malcolm. Malcolm was diagnosed with canine bone cancer in 2004 and struggled through his illness for almost two years. Very little was known about canine cancer and Luke wanted to take action to change that. Through the walk, Luke raises awareness about this disease and the little known fact that dogs get the same kinds of cancer that humans do. He is walking from Austin to Boston with THEE best company of two Great Pyrenees, Hudson and Murphy. You can support 2 Dogs 2000 Miles in many ways. Visit the website here for information, schedules and how to Puppy Up! You can follow their journey on Twitter here.
They will be walking in Washington, DC, this Friday, September 18. If you are in the area, why not join Hudson, Murphy and Luke to show your support. I will be taking my humans with me when 2 Dogs 2000 Miles come to Connecticut in February. I will keep you posted!
