Austin to Boston - Walking for a Cure

Posted: Thursday, February 04, 2010

A man and his two dogs begin a 2,400 mile journey to raise funds and awareness for cancer in pets.



From TODAY correspondent Jill Rappaport

When Luke Robinson's beloved dog Malcolm died of bone cancer, his world was shattered. He had lost his best friend and didn't understand why, so he took action. In March 2008, Luke and his two other Great Pyrenees pooches embarked on a walk for life called "2 dogs, 2,000 miles." They started in Austin, Texas, and are hoping to reach Boston by this spring. Their goal is to raise awareness for animal cancer, and they are hoping to get some answers to this dreadful disease along the way.

Their long journey, complete with backpacks even on the dogs, has been an incredible experience to say the least. And the support from people they have met on the open road has been overwhelming. Having lost my own beautiful beloved German Shepherd Jack to this same disease, I know too well the excruciating pain we as owners and our pets go through when stricken with cancer. We need answers, and a cure for us and our fur angels. With every step they take, Luke Robinson and his dogs feel they are just a little closer to getting some of those answers. We can only hope....
