The Port Colborne Lions club will be hosting the annual Purina Walk For Guide Dogs on Sunday, May the 25th. This family event allows participants to bring their canine friends along a pre-planned walk route to raise money for the Lion’s Foundation of Canada, which supports the raising and training of dog guides for those with disabilities. We are seeking volunteers to pledge and raise much needed funds.


The Purina Walk for Dog Guides is a national fundraising walk held in more than 250 communities across Canada. It raises funds to help train Dog Guides for Canadians with visual, hearing, medical or physical disabilities. Each Walk is organized by local volunteers with support from Lions Foundation of Canada. To date, the Walks have collectively raised more than $9 million.


The Walk For Guide Dogs supports the following programs: 
  CANINE VISION DOG GUIDES for people who are blind or visually impaired 
  HEARING EAR DOG GUIDES for people who are deaf or hard of hearing 
  SPECIAL SKILLS DOG GUIDES for people with a medical or physical disability 
  SEIZURE RESPONSE DOG GUIDES for people who have epilepsy 
  AUTISM ASSISTANCE DOG GUIDES for children with autism spectrum disorder 
  DIABETIC ALERT DOG GUIDES launching in 2013


With your support, the Port Colborne Lions were able to provide an
Autism Assistance dog to Noah of St Catharines in 2013!




Date: Sunday May 25th, 2014
Time: Registration starts at 10am, walk begins at 11am
Location: Port Colborne Lions Club Hall, 49 Chippawa Rd., Port Colborne
