It began with a promise to raise awareness of canine cancer one mile, one city, and one person at time. Luke Robinson and his two Great Pyrenees walked 2000 miles from Austin to Boston to fulfill the promise he made to his dog Malcolm who died from this horrible disease.
2 Million Dogs was formed on the belief that if 2 dogs can walk 2000 miles to bring awareness to cancer surely 2 million dogs can walk 2 miles. Our mission benefits the study of canine cancer and comparative oncology.
Thanks to all of you who walked with us on November 7th!

On Sunday, November 7, 2010 the sun came out and we experienced a beautiful fall day! In fact, there wasn't a drop of rain falling on any of our 12 city Walks that day. Luke calls it "Trail Magic".
