Hundreds Jog to Fight Cancer in Canines, Kids

A crowd of two-legged and four-legged walkers and joggers made their way to Brambleton Town Center this morning to break a sweat for a great cause.

It was the inaugural Two by Four Race Against Childhood & Canine Cancer, an event that invited pups and people to run or walk and raise funds and awareness for cutting edge research in the cancers that impact kids and dogs.

“We are so moved by the outpouring of support from the community, on both sides, from people wanting to support canines and kids,” said Ulrike Szalay, founder of Canines-N-Kids Foundation. “We planned this in two months, and we’re amazed at the turn out. This is such a caring and generous community.”

The event was put on by the Canines-N-Kids Foundation and Smashing Walnuts Foundation.
