The fourth annual Purina Walk for Dog Guides is happening in Enderby May 31.
The event is being held at the Lions Gazebo at Riverside Park and is sponsored by the Enderby Lions Club in conjunction with the Lions Foundation of Canada.
Registration starts at 9 a.m. and the walk will begin at 10 a.m. There will be three walk lengths to choose from — two, 2.5 or 4.5 kilometres.
“It’s the largest walk of its kind in Canada,” said Jean Early, with the Enderby event.
“The Purina Walk for Dog Guides is held in more than 250 communities across Canada in support of Canadians with disabilities.”
Participation in the walk can help provide one of the six kinds of dog guides:
Canine vision for people who are blind or visually impaired
Hearing dog for people who are deaf or hard of hearing
Special skills for people with a medical or physical disability
Seizure response for people with epilepsy
Autism assistance for children with autism spectrum disorder
Diabetic alert launched in 2013
Anyone wanting to participate in the walk can get pledge sheets at the Stocking Up Shop in Enderby and the Enderby Pharmacy and Wellness Centre. For more information, contact Angela at 250-838-6273 or Jean at 250-838-7410.
