From my friend Lynda:
I've done a booth at two of these, at the Bear Mountain location, for the ADOA. It's a HUGE event, and a great way to talk with average dog owners.
The Riverside Park one attracts celebraties and usually makes it on the news that night.
It's also just an awesome fun day out.

Subject: It's Here...the 2006 DOGSWALK AGAINST CANCER
The American Cancer Society is pleased to announce that registration for the 2006 Dogswalk Against Cancer is now open!
On Sunday, May 7, 2006, join the American Cancer Society for a fun-filled day of entertainment, food, prizes, and giveaways at the 2006 Dogswalk Against Cancer. Taking place in New York City's Riverside Park and Bear Mountain State Park in Rockland County, Dogswalk Against Cancer is a noncompetitive walk-a-thon and festival where everyone can enjoy a day in the park while raising money to fight human and animal cancers.
We are chasing our tails with excitement at the launch of the 2006 Dogswalk Against Cancer Web site. We raised more than $100,000 online last year and we hope to double that amount this year! Easy and fun to use, this year's Web site has features that will allow you to:
Register & Collect Pledges
Email friends, family members, and co-workers and request donations.
Even if you can't join us on May 7, 2005, make a contribution to this great cause.
Sign Up to Volunteer
Help out in the weeks leading up to the event or on event day.
Purchase a Journal Page
Showcase your company, your pooch or buy a page for a loved one.
Visit the Doggie Door
Read inspirational stories, get helpful tips, nominate your pooch to be the 2005 Dogswalk Against Cancer King or Queen, and more!
Forming or Joining a Team
Once again, you can form a team or join a team already created by a friend or family member. Teams are a great way to encourage family, friends, and co-workers to come celebrate the day's activities as well as a good way to grow your fundraising effort.
