Where has the time gone?!? This Will be my 7th Walkathon. My first Walkathon effort allowed me to sponsor Kartie, now a working Guide and I am so honored to also have a wonderful relationship with his handler. Read on - things come full circle.
My 2nd Walkathon's sponsorship was for Semper, a sturdy and wonderful yellow Lab, named in part for my husband's service in the Marine Corps during the Vietnam conflict.
Year 3 I sponsored Cooper, (named for my best friend, Debbie Cooper) now a Service K-9 with K9s for Warriors.
My 4th year's Walkathon efforts allowed me to sponsor a student who is in NC with his guide dog.
My 5th Walkathon I sponsored a dog, named Ari (named for my childhood imaginary friend) who Goes IFT September 2018
Last year I named a puppy Ruthie in honor of my mother who passed away this past year after 96 wonderful years
I said things come full circle and this year, and again this year I am teaming up with my first sponsored dog and his handler, Theresa Wells! Please visit us at TEAM KARTIE and make your donation there.
Also, please consider joining us at the Orlando Walkathon on April 13th - the day before Kartie’s 6th bday!
