THE STORY

2018

A golden retriever named Spencer won over hearts worldwide, greeting runners on the Boston Marathon route.

2021

Spencer was named the Official Dog of the Boston Marathon.

 

2022

Spencer and his sister Penny were both stolen from this world within weeks of each other from cancer.

2023

MA Golden Meetups invited the community to keep Spencer and Penny's memory alive with a Golden Strong meetup the day before the Boston Marathon and raised over $2000 toward the Morris Animal Foundation's research on cancer in golden retrievers.  

2024

We invite you to join us again in honoring Spencer and Penny's memory and help us take a stand against canine cancer in golden retrievers. Because together, we are Golden Strong. 

​Spencer and Penny's successors, Jimmy and Jade, will be there too! ​
