The Denver VPI K9K Pet Cancer Awareness Walk
Sunday, June 9, 2013
The VPI K9K is a national series and is excited about its 3rd annual event in Denver. Veterinary Pet Insurance (VPI) is leading the charge in raising awareness of the nation’s number one disease-related killer of dogs and cats with a fun-filled 3K (1.8 miles) walk for both people and their pets. This year’s K9K carries participants around one of Denver's most beautiful parks, Washington Park.
Pet owners and their canines will walk in unison to help raise money for the Animal Cancer Foundation (ACF). All registration fees will be donated to this non-profit organization focused on the prevention and treatment of cancer in pets and people. Registrants for the VPI K9K Pet Cancer Awareness Walk receive entry to the K9K, a commemorative T-shirt, a bandanna for their pooch, and post-event refreshments.
A National Education and Fund-Raising Effort
In 2010, VPI received more than 30,000 claims for treatment of cancer—the No. 1 disease-related killer of dogs and cats. Fortunately, early detection and treatment of cancer in pets can prolong life and increase chances of survival.
To promote pet cancer awareness and research, VPI hosts two philanthropic K9K Pet Cancer Awareness Walks each year: one in Denver, Colo., and a second in Long Beach, Calif..
