Walk 4 Hope Welcomes Pets!

Hi, there! I’m Daisy Mae Clementine Petunia. My family all had different ideas about what my name should be so… I ended up with a bunch of them! Anyhow, I’m the fluffy mini-Golden Doodle in the picture. The big guy is my bestie, Kipper. He lives right next door to us.

Kipper and I would like to invite our furry friends to join us at the Walk 4 Hope on September 25th. It’s an event that’s a super big deal for both of us. Here’s why.
My Aunt Rhonda was the most fabulous lady. She’s the one who started MOCC just six weeks before we lost her to mucinous ovarian cancer. Aunt Ra came to stay with us right after her diagnosis, and I hung out with her all day, every day. We were inseparable.
Furry family members, like Kipper and me, take the job of caregiver very seriously. When someone we love is sick, we know we can make a difference. You might even call us therapists, right? It’s important work and we are honored to do it.
Even though Aunt Rhonda is gone from our sight, our work continues. That’s because my family and I are determined to help find a cure for mucinous ovarian cancer. We want to keep other families from having to say good-bye to a woman they love far too soon, like we had to do.

Ready to Hit Up Some Sponsors?

Instead of charging unemployed puppers like all of us a registration fee for the Walk 4 Hope, we are encouraging you to get sponsors. Show off that cute little face. Wag that tail. Hoomans love that stuff! We’ll put your face on our Facebook page. You can tell all the hoomans you know to send a few bucks to MOCC online in your name. Because we are an all-volunteer organization, every dollar we raise goes to fund Rhonda’s Award, a $50,000 research grant named in honor of my aunt.
Here's how to get started:
  • Grab a hooman and have them email us a picture of you and a quick description. Send it to: Hope4MOC@gmail.com
  • Once we get the email, we’ll post your photo on our Facebook page. So, make sure to tell your hooman to head on over and follow us on Facebook. When your picture pops up, they can share it with their friends.
  • We’ll drop you a quick email with more info once everything is all set up.
  • The suggested minimum donation for your hooman to join the Walk 4 Hope is $25. Registration opens on June 1st . Find all of Walk 4 Hope details here.
