November 1, 2006: George Rooney and Debbie Safran got the news every greyhound owner fears. Sweet little Ellie has cancer. Osteosarcoma, of course. Yet her story was a little different than most. Hopeful. Happy. She beat the odds...and beat the cancer, living to the ripe old age of 14.
It was the inspiration behind the 1st annual Chase Away 5K, a charity fun run in South Burlington, VT to benefit Chase Away K9 Cancer.
Seven years later, this annual event has raised over $50,000 to help fund canine cancer research studies across the U.S.
We're looking forward to our 8th year. Keep your calendar open for October 14, 2018 so you can be a part of it all. Register on runsignup.com before September 12 to include your dog's name on this year's event tee. Or register at the event! Either way, you get a full day of doggie fun because your bib is also your entrance fee to Wag It Forward!
See you at the Chase Away!
