Too far to participate in person?  Join Speaking for Spot’s virtual walk team.  Participants will receive a T-shirt and a dog bandanna this year, compliments of the Sacramento Canine Cancer Campaign Volunteers and I will draw the name of one Speaking for Spot team participant who will receive a personally signed copy of Speaking for Spot.
