The Lions are bringing Purina Walk for Dog Guides to Esterhazy


200lionsEsterhazy & District Lions Club is bringing The Purina® Walk for Dog Guides to Esterhazy on September 12, and if you have a dog (or even just want the exercise yourself), you are invited to be part of the action!

According to the official website…

The Purina® Walk for Dog Guides is a national fundraising walk held in more than 200 communities across Canada. It raises funds to help train Dog Guides for Canadians with visual, hearing, medical or physical disabilities. Each Walk is organized by local volunteers with support from Lions Foundation of Canada. To date, the Walk has raised more than $12 million! Communities host Walks in the Spring and Fall”

Here are some reasons you might want to participate…

  • To help provide Dog Guides at no cost to the growing number of Canadians who need them.
  • To enjoy a fun day out in Esterhazy. Walk with your friends, family and co-workers. The event is pet friendly but you don’t need a dog to participate.
  • Everyone is welcome – all ages and abilities – and you are not required to complete the route to participate.
  • Everyone is a winner! The money you raise goes towards this important program and you could earn an incentive prize.
  • There is no registration fee and 100% of the funds you raise will go towards the cause.

You can register for the walk, or make a donation to the cause, at the official page HERE, or you can show up on Sept 12 at the Esterhazy Museum at 10:30 a.m. to register. The walk will begin at 11:00 a.m. and there will be refreshments for the walkers afterward.
