Despite the gloomy, threatening to rain weather – eight dogs and their walkers took part in the Lions Foundation of Canada Purina Walk for Dog Guides. This fundraiser is extremely important as many people depend on dog guides to assist them in day to day life. Breeding, raising, training, and matching a dog guide with an applicant is estimated at $25,000, however, an applicant does not pay anything, and the Dog Guide Program receives no government funding. Approximately $1,000 was raised. The top three pledge were Cindy Szekely with Buddy, Liz Clarke with Tiegan, and Gerry Morin with Larry.
