Relay For Life Aylesbury Woof Walkies 2019
Sun 14 Apr 2019 - Sun 14 Apr 2019
About this event: Woof Walkies is a sponsored 5km dog walk organised by Cancer Research UK's volunteers. Woof walkies honours the life-long support and love our canine friends provide. At Relay For Life Aylesbury Woof Walkies, dogs and their owners pay to take part in the sponsored dog walk around the lovely Aston Clinton Park – other family members are also welcome, the more the merrier! The route is suitable for pushchairs, and will be on grass and surfaced paths giving you, the family and your furriest friend the chance to join hundreds of others on a 5km walk. Each dog will receive a goody bag on completion. Get sponsored and raise money for Cancer Research UK or just enjoy a stroll raising awareness for the cause! Relay For Life Aylesbury Woof Walkies is a chance to spend a few hours with family, friends and your beloved dog in the great outdoors whilst raising those essential funds to research all 200+ cancers. £5 for the first dog, £3 for any additional dogs. No more than 3 dogs per person Did you know? Cancer is a disease of cells. All cells can become cancerous - whether they belong to humans or dogs. When cancer does arise, the cells rapidly divide and demonstrate several other key hallmarks of cancer. The treatments we have developed for beating cancer in humans can often be used to treat dogs too. Often, like in many cases of human cancers, the first line of treatment will be to remove the tumour. Radiotherapy to kill the cancer cells or chemotherapy to kill actively dividing cells are both used in treating canine cancer. There are many different chemotherapeutic treatments that have been developed over the years, each designed to tackle cancer in a slightly different manner. One drug, carboplatin, was developed by Cancer Research UK scientists for treating cancer in humans. Carboplatin is now also used to treat cancer in dogs. It is particularly effective against sarcomas, a type of cancer that can form throughout the body from connective tissues.
