Join Us for “Your Next Step is the Cure” or Donate to the Cause!


Family Pet Animal Hospital is a proud sponsor and participant of this year’s 9th annual “Your Next Step is the Cure” Chicago fun run, walk, or kite fly benefiting the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation.  Please consider joining us or donating to help us reach our fundraising goal!

The “Your Next Step is the Cure” events raise much-needed funds for the patient services and clinical research projects of the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation. This is a cause dear to our hearts as our beloved co-founder, Marla Minuskin, lost her battle with cancer in 2013. We will be there to celebrate her memory as well as to raise awareness and funds for this important cause.

Several of your favorite veterinarians and staff members from Family Pet Animal Hospital will be there.  We invite you and your family to stop by our table and say “hello” come out to support the Family Pet team and other participants.  Better yet, register to run, jog, walk, or decorate and fly a kite yourself.

  • What:  “Your Next Step is the Cure” Chicago fun run/walk/fly
  • When:  Sunday, June 10, 2018 (8 am registration, 9 am run/walk/fly, 10 am celebration)
