Kate Koogler Canine Ride rases $11,000 for bone cancer research

November 27, 2008

The sixth annual Kate Koogler Canine Cancer Ride was held Oct. 4.

There were 50 motorcycles who participated in the ride that started at the Cozy Restaurant in Thurmont, Md., and went through Carroll, Frederick and Washington counties, ending at Pen Mar Park near Cascade.

There were 108 people who attended the event and the amount raised for bone cancer research totaled $11,000.

The money will be donated to the University of Minnesota, where research is being done on naturally occurring cases of bone cancer.

Over the past six years, the Kate Fund has donated $61,000 to research that not only helps canine patients, but helps answer questions about human bone cancer as well. For more information, go to www.katefund.org.
