Kilometres add up to guide dog funds

A five-kilometre walk is not only good for the body, it can help someone in Nanaimo gain greater independence, safety and mobility.

Nanaimo Purina Walk for Dog Guides May 27 at Maffeo Sutton Park, raising funds and help provide dog guides to people  with disabilities in the community.

With no registration fee, all money raised goes to the Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides,  which trains five types of guide dogs (vision, hearing, special skills, seizure response, and autism assistance) and provides them at no cost to Canadians in need.

Registration opens at 10 a.m. and the walk starts at 11 a.m.
