Every Dog Counts
Bring your family, bring your friends, bring your dogs, and bring your friends’ dogs to the 2019 Southeastern Guide Dogs Walkathon. This free, family-friendly and dog-friendly event includes a 3K walk, delicious food, a beer garden, live entertainment, music, shopping, vendors galore, and of course, lots and lots of dogs!
Going for Guinness!
This year, we’re going for Guinness! Every dog counts as we attempt to break a Guinness World Record for the most dogs wearing a bandana at a single event.
Paws for a Cause
While we walk, together we’ll make an impact for people with vision loss and veterans with disabilities. Whether you raise funds for our mission or simply bring your dog to count in the Guinness Word Record attempt, you are making a difference. We look forward to seeing you at Walkathon!
