The annual walk is a fundraising initiative for Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides that helps to provide life-changing service dogs to Canadians with physical and medical disabilities at no cost, according to event organizers.
Last year alone, the foundation placed 203 Dog Guides with Canadians from coast-to-coast in seven different programs (Canine Vision, Hearing, Service, Seizure Response, Autism Assistance, Diabetic Alert and Support).
Since 1985, the Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides has raised $17 million towards Dog Guide programs.
