With $2500 raised for the Baker Institute for Animal Health, and just under $500 raised for Kyle’s Legacy Inc., our inaugural event was a great success! Despite unpredictable New England rainy weather, almost 60 people and 35 pups attended the walk at Borderland State Park in Easton. We walked to honor Kyle’s life, and to express our dedication to not only continue to raise funds, but to work toward a goal of providing financial assistance for preliminary cancer screening and surgeries.
In an effort to help Kyle's Legacy get some momentum when we first started, Our friend, Linda, fellow Puggle Mama and rescuer, ran an online auction to help support our cause. The event raised $300 for Canine Cancer Research.
