|The Seventh Annual Kate Koogler Canine Cancer Ride
October 3, 2009
On behalf of The Kate Koogler Canine Cancer Fund, I would like to thank everyone involved in the Seventh Annual Kate Ride to raise money for bone cancer research in dogs. We had a beautiful day and an excellent ride for the 33 motorcycles who participated and the 67 people who turned out for the event. Participation was down quite a bit this year but The Kate Fund raised $9,000.00 from the ride itself. Together with an additional $8,000.00 raised throughout the year, we are donating $17,000.00 to bone cancer research - our best year yet! That brings our total to $77,000.00 in 7 years. The money will be split between The University of Minnesota and Colorado State University's Animal Cancer Center where research is being done on naturally occurring cases of bone cancer that will not only help dogs but will help people with cancer as well.
