WALKATHON - APRIL 6, 2019 at DEPOT PARK, 9am-12pm

Join us at Depot Park for our family-friendly, dog-friendly, make-a-difference Walkathon. Walk for a worthy cause as we provide paws for people with vision loss and veterans with disabilities.

Walkathons are the primary fundraiser for Southeastern Guide Dogs. The last twenty years our Gainesville group of puppy raisers have been a part of other SEGD Walkathons throughout Florida. In 2019, we will be holding our first Walkathon in our great pet friendly City of Gainesville!

Help us as we attempt to break a World Record for most number of dogs wearing bandanas at a single event. You provide the dogs, we’ll provide the bandanas!

Here’s the scoop:

Depot Park, Gainesville
3K Walk
Fun for the whole family – and dogs!

We've discovered that Southeastern Guide Dogs is a wonderful organization with an incredible mission—to breed, raise, and train smart and loyal guide dogs and provide them at no charge to people who need them. The school receives no government funding, so they're counting on us to support healthy puppies and on-campus instruction for students with vision loss and veterans with disabilities.

We feel great about supporting an organization with the compassion, integrity, and results that Southeastern Guide Dogs offers. The alumni gain freedom and independence through these amazing dogs, and this Walkathon is their biggest fundraiser of the year.

Please support our team as we support Southeastern Guide Dogs. Donate your biggest and best gift today, and help our team reach our fundraising goal. It's an impressive cause, and your gift is tax deductible.

P.S. This year, we're going for a record! Every dog counts as we attempt to break a World Record for most number of dogs wearing bandanas at a single event. Join me and bring your dog to Walkathon!

Join us the Gainesville Walkathon and take a walk for the dogs!
