It’s almost time to take your four-legged friend for a walk for a good cause.

The fifth annual Purina Walk for Dog Guides is May 29 at the Lion’s Gazebo at Enderby’s Riverside Park.

“The largest walk of its kind in Canada, the Purina Walk for Dog Guides is held in more than  250 communities in support of Canadians with disabilities,” said Jean Early, a local organizer.

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

The Enderby event is sponsored by the Enderby Lions Club in conjunction with the Lions Foundation of Canada.

Anyone wanting to participate in the walk can get pledge sheets at Enderby Jewellers, Sutherlands Bakery or Shuswap Insurance in Enderby.
