Join us for a day to support therapy dogs and the courageous children who love them. Hosted by David Frei, voice of the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, and Cat Greenleaf, Emmy award-winning journalist and host of NBC’s “Talk Stoop.”

LOCATION: Carl Schurz Park, NYC, East 84th Street promenade entrance

DATE: Saturday, September 19, 2015 (rain or shine)

TIME: 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

This fun-filled event is a 2k walk open to the public, with proceeds from funds raised going to support children battling cancer, and the therapy dog teams that bring smiles to their faces on a daily basis.



  • There is NO FEE for pre-registering* online. 
  • On-site Registration on Sept 19th: $10 Donation
  • All dog walk participants are required to sign a waiver.

*Note: Please see the "How Can I Help?" section below for instructions on how to register for the dog walk.






There will be raffle baskets and prizes for the "Best Dressed Big Dog" and the "Best Dressed Little Dog." Participants must be registered walkers and in attendance to win. David Frei and Cat Greenleaf will serve as the judges.



  • Remember to practice over a four-week period leading up to the walk so that you and your dog are properly trained and ready for the event.
  • Practice walking on trails and in other locations where people walk with their dogs to acclimate your dog to other dogs in a pack with distractions.



  • Stay hydrated with water at start/finish. Watering holes will be available along the route.
  • Make sure to stop if your dog is lagging behind. Pay close attention to the energy and stress levels of your dog. Pulling or dragging your dog is never allowed.
  • Have proof of rabies vaccination handy.
  • Dogs must be on leashes at all times. Use of retractable leashes is highly discouraged and can be hazardous in a crowd.
  • Inspect your dog’s pads for any sign of cuts and wear. A veterinarian will be available on-site.
  • Don’t forget to have fun!
