    MONTREAL, Sept. 15 /CNW Telbec/ -

                         The Canadian Cancer Society
           invites the media to Laval's Paws for Hope walk-a-thon
                       on Sunday September 16th, 2007
                              starting at 10 am
                         Centre de la nature de Laval
                             901 du Parc Avenue
      close to Autoroute 25, between St-Martin and de la Concorde Blvds

     The concept of the Canadian Cancer Society's Paws for Hope walk-a-thon
             is very simple, but very entertaining and original :
           dogs and masters will walk 2 to 5 kilometres in exchange
             for donations on behalf of the fight against cancer.

       The Provincial Spokesperson for the event and showbiz columnist,
          Michel Girouard accompanied by his dogs Cachou and Sacha,
              will be on site and give interviews to the media.

           Cameramen and photographers are invited to shoot images
                           and photos at the site:
       the walk will be followed by a picnic, with on-site animation:
                           a dog's fashion show and
               other activities such as information stands on
                         healthy lifestyles for dogs,
                   as well as training and grooming tips.

        In 2007, 6 Canadian Cancer Society Paws for Hope walk-a-thons
                 will take place at various Quebec locations.
                     Ormstown's event was held last week,
            Laval's walk will take place this Sunday. Sept. 16th,
        and 4 last walk-a-thons are scheduled on Sunday, Sept. 23rd :
               in Montreal (Angrignon's Park) and in Terrebonne
                       (Parc écologique de la Coulée)
            and on Sunday Sept. 30th: in Ste-Adèle (Pentes 40-80)
           and in VaudreuilDorion (Campus de la Cité des Jeunes).
     In total, some 1,000 dogs and about 2,500 masters will participate.
