Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides 2023/2024

My Activity Tracking


This May, help me “walk across Canada” to give more Canadians a new leash on life!

From guiding their handlers through their daily lives to getting help when it's needed most, Dog Guides play a crucial role in the lives of Canadians with disabilities. By supporting me with a donation to the Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides, you are enabling Lions Foundation to fulfill their mission to empower Canadians with disabilities to navigate their world with confidence and independence by providing Dog Guides at no cost to them and supporting each pair in their journey together.

Please donate now and support me in my challenge!

Sunday 28th Apr

The Walk for Dog Guides is an event that is near and dear to my heart.  Many times I have been asked why I put so much of my time and energy into coordinating the Kingston walk. I had my first dog guide from LFCDG, I was shocked to find out that they don't receive any government funding and rely solely on donations. There main  yearly fundraising event is through the Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides that's organized in over 200 cities across Canada.  It costs LFCDG $35,000 to breed, raise, train and place just one of their dogs who will assist a person with a medical or physical disability like me.      The other amazing thing  about LFCDG is that they train 7 different types of service dogs!  

All 3 of my Service dogs Lulu, Chase, and now Ellie have changed my life so much. I can’t imagine living without one of them. The amount of safety as well as immense independence they have given me. Beyond the Unconditional Love. 

I would like to see LFCDG to have the same impact on other people with disabilities.  

I can only wish for LFCDG’s to be able to continue to provide these life changing Dog Guides to others requiring them. 

By sponsoring me in the Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides you can  help provide Dog Guides for others. ANY AMOUNT HELPS!
