Personal Message:

When I started volunteering with Southeastern Guide Dogs, I found out that they breed, raise, and train some of the finest guide dogs in the world. The puppies are adorable, but to witness these amazing dogs in training is nothing short of miraculous. Thanks to their intelligence and training, people who cannot see are suddenly able to walk out their front door and go wherever they want and need to go. Just imagine if you or I couldn't leave the house without help!

When I learned that Southeastern Guide Dogs relies 100% on private donations, receives no government funding, and doesn't charge their students a dime for their services – that's when I decided to participate in their biggest fundraiser of the year: the Walkathon.

Won't you join me in supporting Southeastern Guide Dogs in their mission to raise and train these puppies, and provide such a priceless service to the visually impaired? I've set an ambitious Walkathon fundraising goal, and your help means a lot to me – and to the students whose lives are changed forever because of these incredible dogs.

Thanks so much for your help. Your donations make it possible for these puppies to stay healthy and grow into career dogs of the highest caliber!
