NOTE: Please continue to stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic which has taken a toll on everyone. We sincerely hope that all of you are staying in place and being a part of the solution to this crisis. In the anticipation of being able to hold our event in September, and that you all will appreciate the chance to once again congregate in person, we have set up this walk site and opened it for Sponsors, Vendors and participants.

While we will take every precaution to provide a safe environment for you, with appropriate Social Distancing guidelines in place, if you do not feel comfortable in being with us physically, we invite you to join the event as a Virtual Walker. There will be no fee to register as a Virtual Walker, and you can fundraise in order to earn a PuppyUp bandana, event tee shirt and more.

PuppyUp Hudson Valley 2020

(formally the New Paltz Walk)

Sunday, October 25th
11 am – 4 pm

We have a new name, along with a new location, but this is the 8th year of having a PuppyUp Walk in the NY area! Please plan on being a part of PuppyUp Hudson Valley at Whitecliff Vineyard in Gardiner, NY. We will walk together to promote awareness of canine cancer and fundraise for cancer research to benefit both pets and people.

We are getting really excited about the PuppyUp Walk on Sunday, October 25, 2020. Registration and check-in opens at 11 AM. The walk starts at 1:30 pm.

PuppyUp Hudson Valley is a family focused event for all humans and canines to enjoy!  This heartwarming and energizing event raises awareness, funds and provides education in the field of comparative oncology and the links between canine and human cancer.  It is a day to honor and recognize those who have survived or are battling cancer, and memorialize those whose lives have been lost to this disease.  Meet our canine and human heroes, visit our sponsors and vendors, enjoy music, food and fun!

Please feel free to contact us.  We would love to hear from you!
