Thank You!

Thank You! 2020 Czar's Promise Virtual EventOn Saturday, October 3, from all points of Madison, Dane County, the state of Wisconsin, and throughout the US, over 200+ absolutely spectacular humans and hero companion pups put their paws to the pavement and tails to the trails to help raise awareness and funds for the 2020 Czar’s Promise Virtual Event!
Whether you registered as a participant, vendor or sponsor, donated or won a silent auction item, created or supported a team, or made a donation, YOU ROCKED IT!
Because of your compassionate hearts and the strength of the human/companion animal bond, $51,858 has been raised to help canines like Raji, Nakia, Briggs, K9 Officer Fred, Phoebe, Emma, Slater, Sonya, Tyrion, Rex, and Hazel in their fight against cancer, and to help support companion animal and pediatric cancer research at the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine and American Family Children’s Hospital in Madison.
CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU to all who joined us virtually to help in our mission. We not only achieved, but surpassed our goal! We are humbled and grateful beyond belief!
Inspiring Hope. Funding Research. This is Czar’s Promise.

It began as a love story; the attraction, immediate. In 2001, a small white fluffball with an infectious smile that had me at "hello", came bounding full steam ahead and into my arms; and yes, that was all it took.
