The Kate Koogler Canine Cancer Fund Receives Generous Grant from Petco Foundation
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 year's 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 our loyal sponsors and participants. The Kate Fund’s 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. Stay tuned for more information and check us out at www.katefund.org as details unfold.

The 8th Annual Kate Koogler Canine Cancer Ride
June 11, 2011
On behalf of The Kate Koogler Canine Cancer Fund, I would like to thank everyone involved in the 8th Annual Kate Ride to raise money for bone cancer research in dogs. We had a beautiful day and an excellent ride for the 30 motorcycles who participated and the 77 people who turned out for the event. This year the Kate Fund raised $9,000.00 from the ride. The money will be split between The University of Minnesota and Colorado State University’s Animal Cancer Center where research is being done on naturally occurring cases of bone cancer that will not only help dogs but will help people with cancer as well.
