Our original goal was to raise $2000 for Chase Away K9 Cancer. After four days we more than doubled that goal. Much thanks to everyone who helped put on the event, the bake sale, the shirts, and the raffles. And much thanks to everyone who supported this very worthwhile cause.
Some may not realize that different ribbon colors have different meanings. For this year’s rosettes we chose lime green and purple because of the meaning behind them. Lime green is the color associated with lymphoma, one of the most common of canine cancers. The second color is royal purple, associated with cancer survivors – and that is the goal is of cancer research, to survive this dreaded disease.
To maximize the donation to Chase Away K9 Cancer, the rosettes were not paid for out of the participants entry fees; they were donated by the following people. Thank you for your support.

Marjorie (Sue) Phillips – in honor of Gretchen and memory of Rachel
Chris Brewer – in memory of Madison
Stephanie Langston – in memory of Lexie
Angela Evers – in memory of Andy, Shane, Helen, and Wizard

Have you been wondering how this year’s shirt look in real life! As you can see from the photo above, it’s bling-tastic! They’ve been spotted around local agility trials and look great. You still have time to order before the RUN AGAIN event!
Did you miss out on last year’s shirt? It’s also still available!

PKC Oct 30, 2010 – To raise money for Chase Away K9 Cancer, Scott Stock agreed, once again, to run the agility course(as the dog) for $500 and in a dress for $1000. We raised $1200!!! In addition, I was asked to run as his challenger. I had great fun with my handler , John from PKC.
