trot for the cure

The 2009 Trot for the Cure benefit is scheduled for January 11, 2009 at Magnolia Plantation in Charleston, South Carolina. The deadline for pre-registration has passed, but registration the day of the event is $30. If you're interested in participating is this fantastic cause, please all 843.971.5865 (call before 8pm).

The Trot for the Cure is an annual fundraiser for canine cancer research held at beautiful and historic Magnolia Gardens. The event includes a walk with your dog(s) through the gardens, entertainment by the Dixie Dancing Dogs who perform canine freestyle and tricks, a talk on canine cancer issues by veterinary oncologist Nicole Northrup, a question/answer session with a panel of veterinary specialists - oncologists, neurologist, opthalmologist, internist, general practitioner and nutritionist, a delicious barbeque by Southern Que-N-Stew, and an exciting raffle.

The first four Trots have raised over $43,000 for canine cancer research. Scientists need continual funding for their valuable work in finding better treatments and cures for cancers in dogs. Enjoying an afternoon at the Trot with your dog and dog friends is a fun way to help them further this important work. All proceeds go to the University of Georgia's Arch Foundation for GA CaRES Fund at the University of Georgia Veterinary Hospital.
