The North Newmarket Lions Club and the Aurora Lions Club are happy to announce that we will be working together in organizing the Pet Valu Virtual Walk for Dog Guides Newmarket-Aurora

This year, we may not be able to walk together in person but we can still make an impact by coming together for Dog Guides!

 

Register, fundraise and log those kilometres so that together, we can walk across Canada to create awareness about Dog Guides and fundraise to assist Lions Foundation of Canada in providing life-changing Dog Guides to Canadians with disabilities.

Our Goal? To "walk" the length of Canada - 5,514 km! Our National Virtual Walk Date is Sunday, May 30th, 2021.

 

We will start off in Canada’s most easterly point, Cape Spear in Newfoundland and cross the finish line in Mt. St. Elias in the Yukon.

 

You can participate by connecting your Fitbit device, downloading the Strava or Map My Fitness App or manually logging the distance you travel. Everytime you get out and active- whether you go for a walk or run, grab your bike to go for a ride, go on a wheelchair accessible trail, or dance around in your living room- we can work together to achieve our goal!
