Paws for the Cause 2020

Paws for the Cause 2020 - Virtual Event

Register or Donate

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and with the health and safety of our participants in mind, Paws for the Cause will not be held in-person, but rather as a virtual event. While this year’s format will be different, the goal stays the same: to raise money to support cancer research at Fox Chase Cancer Center.

What's Different This Year?

  • Historically a one-day event, Paws will take place over the entire month of October, offering you the opportunity to make a difference and fundraise all month long.
  • CATS! We are excited to welcome cats and their owners to participate this year.
  • Join us for our “Pup Rally” kick-off on our Facebook event page on Thursday, October 1 at 5:00 PM.
  • Participate in our four themed weeks, including the ever-popular Halloween themed costume contest.

Rules of the Road

  • Just pay your one-time registration fee. Start a team, join a team or register solo.
    • Registration: $20 for adults; $10 for children 12 and under.
    • Includes giveaway bag to be mailed week of October 12.
  • There are no requirements. Walk…nap…pounce…dance…snuggle…whatever moves you and your pet, the sky’s the limit!
  • Your favorite things from previous years will still be available, including awesome raffle baskets and our popular costume contest. Be sure to check out available pets on our Rescue Roundup pages.

All registered participants will receive a commemorative Paws for the Cause facemask, photo magnet and totebag. Items will be mailed the week of October 12. See you in October!
