Inaugural 2 Million Dogs Puppy Up! Walk

Posted by Erich Trapp on September 19, 2010

When? November 7th, 2010

It began with a promise to raise awareness about canine cancer – one mile, one city, and one person at time. Luke Robinson, with his two dogs, Hudson and Murphy, walked over 2000 miles, from Austin to Boston, to fulfill the promise he made to his dog Malcolm, who died from this horrible disease.

2 Million Dogs was formed with the belief that if 2 dogs can walk 2000 miles to bring awareness about cancer, surely 2 million dogs can walk 2 miles. Our mission benefits the study of canine cancer and comparative oncology.

Be a part of history this November 7th, 2010, as thousands in cities all across America join in on the promise to advance awareness about canine cancer and learn more about the benefits, to humans and animals alike, of comparative oncology.

Sign up now for the Inaugural 2 Million Dogs Puppy Up! Walk in your area — there will never be another first time like this to Puppy Up! against cancer.

A cancer-free world starts with one step, one mile at a time.

Below is a list of ALL the dogs and Smokey, the cat, and the total number of votes (in dollars) they received.

VOTING ENDS SOON!

Posted by Erich Trapp on September 12, 2010

Voting for the calendar contest has been phenomenal!Thank you!

This is just a quick reminder that voting ends for this year’s 2011 “Cancer Can’t Keep a Good Dog Down” calendar contest at 12 midnight Central Daylight Time today, Sunday, September 12th. For those of you who have trouble translating Central Time into your time zone, here’s some help:

voting ends in the Eastern time zone (e.g.: New York) at 1:00 AM Monday September 13

voting ends in the Mountain time zone (e.g.: Denver) at 11:00 PM Sunday September 12

voting ends in the Pacific time zone (e.g.: Seattle) at 10:00 PM Sunday September 12

Voting for many contestants is extremely close. Others have had absolutely no votes at all. Not even their own people! Can you imagine? What’s that about?

We had over 120 photos submitted this year for the calendar. In the past, we’ve devoted 2 pages in the calendar to showcase all the entries. This year we will try our best to do the same. However, we were pretty much at our limit last year with 100 entries. We may have to leave some of the photos out of the gallery if they will not all fit. If it comes down to that, we will base our decision on which photos to leave out based on how many votes the photos have at the end of the contest. The last time I checked there were over 34 photos without votes.

Voting is in real time, so when the voting ends at midnight (Central Time) you will be able to see the top 13 winners by following this link https://2md2m.ejoinme.org/MyEvents/2011Calendar/FundraiserDirectory/tabid/229975/Default.aspx.

All donations are date and time stamped by Greater Giving (the company processing the payments). Greater Giving is on Pacific Time.

Ginger has been verifying off-line donations as she’s received them. Once the contest is over she will re-verify all off-line donations. Once those donations have been verified she will send out an email with the official winners listed early Monday morning. And I will post the winners on the Daily and to Facebook, as well as here and our other blog.

Good Luck to everyone! Thank you again for your enthusiastic participation!
