WALK YOUR DOG. CHANGE A LIFE.

Bring your friends (the furry ones too!) and help us celebrate the amazing partnerships of assistance dogs and the people who need them.

This outdoor family-fun event includes a one-mile fundraising walk, dog costume contest, dog-centric vendors, food, music, and more.

Your fundraising helps us provide even more assistance dogs to people with disabilities, free of charge.
