Bring your pups and join in the fun and festivities for the Puppy Up! Walk at Stapleton Central Park in Denver, Colorado on November 6th  from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM local time. In addition to the 2-mile walk, we will be having A Puppy Up! Festival that will include human and canine entertainment such as music, flyball, agility and disc dogs. Our Puppy Up! Market will include pet businesses and pet cancer organizations along with human cancer organizations. Be prepared to come out and do a little early Christmas shopping. We will also have food vendors. Register online here.

Our Grand Marshalls/Cancer Heroes for the walk are Allison, an 11- year old brain tumor survivor and Pythagoras, a St. Bernard who is battling bone cancer.

Allison epitomizes the phrase “Puppy Up!” In addition to fighting back against a brain tumor, Allison decided to do something to help other families going through the pain and loneliness of cancer by starting The Stinkbug Project. Allison makes and sells dog biscuits, using the proceeds to purchase prison-trained dogs to give to other children who are battling cancer.

Pythagoras is a very handsome, gentle St. Bernard. You can learn more about Pythagoras here .
