Mission Statement

Our organization will accomplish that mission in the following ways: Education & Awareness, Empowerment & Mobilization and Investment in Research.

Description

In March 2008 a man and his two dogs embarked on a cross-country trek that was inspired by the loss of his Great Pyrenees to cancer. Some of you have heard the story of Luke Robinson, Hudson and Murphy...

If 2 dogs could walk over 2,000 miles surely it was possible!
