The 10th Annual Kate Koogler Canine Cancer Ride
Saturday, June 15, 2013!
Dr. Teresa Lee Koogler, president of The Kate Koogler Canine Cancer Fund,
Inc. presents Dr. Jaime
Modiano researcher at University of Minnesota with a check for $25,000.00.
This money represents the $9500.00 raised at this yearís 9th annual
motorcycle ride fundraiser and a portion of the $25,000.00 that The Kate
Fund received as a grant from Petco Foundation. The money will be used to
fund research into the causes and treatments of already existing naturally
occurring bone related cancers in dogs. Bone cancer in dogs and people are
identical so the research is directly applicable to human cancer research
as well. The Kate Fund has donated more than $100,000.00 to cancer research
since its inception in 2002 thanks to all of our loyal sponsors and
participants. The Kate Fundís partnership with Petco Foundation will allow
us to broaden our fundraising efforts for the future in addition to the
10th motorcycle ride in June 2013. We are also planning a much different
event on Carroll Creek at the Amphitheater on September 28, 2013. Stay
tuned for more information and check us out at
as details unfold.

This is the most fantastic news ever! Thanks so much Petco - they came to us
and asked us to submit an application for part of a $50,000.00 grant. And
they gave us half of the grant - $10,000.00 more than we asked for. Dr. Modiano at the University of Minnesota is so happy to be able to move forward
on a current project with this kind of support. Opens a lot of new doors with
The Kate Fund's association with a national organization!
With warm regards,
The Kate Koogler Fund in a 501 C 3 Non-Profit Organization.
