Mark your calendar for Furry Friends Network's 8th annual
5K Trail Run and 2-Mile Fun Walk  

This year we race to beat cancer! 

Cancer is a leading cause of death in companion animals. An estimated 1,100 out of every 100,000 dogs and slightly fewer cats develop cancer each year, a rate similar to humans. Your support for Race for Their Lives will not only help animals in need but also make a difference for cancer prevention and treatment with 5% of net proceeds from Race for Their Lives donated to the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine to help fund cancer research in companion animals.
