Get in shape and get outdoors for a good cause –

Join TEAM BERNER on Saturday, August 17, 2013 in the beautiful Marin Headlands

Join us for a fun morning on your choice of a 2-mile or 4-mile hike along a beautiful coastal trail with your dog!  In the past, we have helped raise funds for Berners and sea mammals together through this event, but this year we do it for our flippered friends alone as we will also be participating in the K9 Cancer Walk in April.  Your entry fee will help feed orphaned and sick seals and sea lions during the year while you get a great T-shirt and a fabulous walk with your dog!

TEAM BERNER is walking to improve the future for not only Bernese Mountain Dogs, but dogs of all breeds. We will walk to honor our dogs who are cancer survivors, in memory of the dogs we have lost to cancer, and in support of a cure so that our dogs may be spared from cancer in the future.

May 7th - K9 Cancer Walk with Team Berner

2011 K9 Cancer Walk, Elk Grove, Calif.

Team Berner

Dear Berner Lovers:

More than six million dogs are diagnosed with cancer each year, meaning half of all dogs are being affected by cancer.  But together, we can help beat this disease. 


Join TEAM BERNER on May 7th at the K9 Cancer Walk in beautiful Elk Grove Regional Park in Elk Grove (11 miles south of Sacramento) and walk for a cure.  100% of all walk registration fees, vendor fees and donations go directly to support Morris Animal Foundation's Canine Cancer Campaign to fund research for canine cancer, early detection methods, effective treatments, and ultimately a cure!

TEAM BERNER is walking to improve the future for not only Bernese Mountain Dogs, but dogs of all breeds. We will walk to honor our dogs who are cancer survivors, in memory of the dogs we have lost to cancer, and in support of a cure so that our dogs may be spared from cancer in the future.

More information can be found on the Morris Animal Foundation web site.
