2014 Arthritis Pet Walk

The 2014 Dog Walk to Cure Arthritis will be held in conjunction with the Walk to Cure Arthritis on May 10, 2014 at the Lake Shawnee Shelter House #2 in Topeka, Kansas. The registration starts at 8:00AM and the Dog Walk to Cure Arthritis begins at 10:00AM with a 2.5-3 mile fun walk along the trail at Lake Shawnee. Our team this year will be "March On Sherman" honoring the first in-house stem cell dog in the State of Kansas who is now 13 years old and still willing to take part in the walk - Although probably a shorter course than the younger dogs will walk!!  Please join the "March On Sherman" team and receive a special team t-shirt honoring this special dog.  The Dog Walk is sponsored by University Bird and Small Animal Clinic to increase awareness of the public to Adult Stem Cell Therapy to improve the comfort of their 4-legged friends.

Please join team "March On Sherman" by searching for Topeka Arthritis Walk 2014 and going to the teams. Please donate to help fund research for human arthritis and join us for our dog walk on May 10, 2014.
