Welcome to the 8th
Annual PuppyUp
Lake Norman 2020!

September 15 – November 15

In light of COVID-19 and increased public health concerns regarding large public gatherings, PuppyUp Lake Norman has taken steps to prioritize the health and safety of the community, our sponsors, vendors, volunteers and committee members by making the decision to hold the Walk virtually this year. To make things fun and competitive, we have decided to hold a Battle of the Cities. 

Join our Six Feet Together Virtual Walk to promote awareness of canine cancer and fundraise for cancer research to benefit both pets and people. There is no limit on how far you can walk or run in the 8-week challenge.

There is an added feature to this walk site: you can link your Fitbit to the walk site, and count your steps even though you’re walking in your own neighborhood!

And another exciting new element: A BATTLE OF THE CITIES… we are challenging Lake Norman and Chattanooga Virtual Walks to see which city can take the most steps and have bragging rights!

PuppyUp Lake Norman 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.  Throughout the walk period, we will be honoring our cancer heroes and recognizing those who have survived or are currently battling cancer. We will be memorializing those whose lives have been lost to this disease as well. Participants will also be able to visit our virtual sponsors and vendors.

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