Walk for Nanaimo SPCA benefits furry friends

NANAIMO – Annual fundraiser supports Nanaimo SPCA programs.

Fighting animal cruelty is as easy as a walk in the park.

Animal lovers across the province are registering and fundraising for the annual Scotiabank and B.C. SPCA Paws for a Cause walk, which is being hosted in 30 communities throughout September and October.

The annual walk, benefitting the Nanaimo B.C. SPCA Branch, will be held at Maffeo Sutton Park on Sept. 10 from 10:30 a.m., with the walk starting at 11:45 a.m.

Participants will be able to enjoy live music from local bands and a lunch buffet courtesy of Dish Nanaimo.

The event brings animal lovers and their furry friends together for a great time as well as a fantastic cause.

“This is the largest single event to raise funds to fight animal cruelty in British Columbia,” said Krista Constantineau, B.C. SPCA manager of fundraising events. “We are overwhelmed by the participation each year – it’s so great to see thousands of people come together across the province to help B.C.’s most vulnerable animals.
