The Canines-N-Kids Foundation is committed to finding a cure to the devastating cancers that kids and man's best friend both spontaneously develop, including bone and brain cancer, lymphoma and leukemia.

We seek to raise awareness of the tremendous unmet need these vulnerable patients share. We fund the most promising, humane comparative clinical research - studying and treating cancer in canine patients when they are sick, to help us better understand these same cancers in kids.

Our ultimate goal is to accelerate the development of better medicines and a cure for both  - a real WIN WIN!

A crowd of two-legged and four-legged walkers and joggers made their way to Brambleton Town Center this morning to break a sweat for a great cause. It was the inaugural Two by Four Race Against Childhood & Canine Cancer, an event that invited pups and people to run or walk and raise funds and awareness for cutting edge research in the cancers that impact kids and dogs.

On Sunday October 1st, two and four-legged athletes will be running and walking to help crush cancer in the inaugural Two By Four Race Against Childhood & Canine Cancer. The Canines-N-Kids Foundation and Smashing Walnuts Foundation are partnering to host this timed 5k race and un-timed 1 mile Dog Jog/Fun Run. All net proceeds will support these nonprofits’ work to raise funds and awareness for cutting-edge research in the cancers that kids and pet dogs BOTH develop. The event will also feature an awards ceremony, vendor fair, and kids and pet activities.

Canines-N-Kids Foundation's Ulrike Szalay talks with WJLA's Dr. Katy Nelson about the promise of comparative oncology to help pet dogs with cancer, and ultimately also children with those same cancer.
