The Ponoka Lions Club is hosting its sixth annual Walk for Guide Dogs at the Lions Centennial Park on May 27.
All proceeds will go to the Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guide School to help provide dog guides and training, free of charge, to Canadians who need them.
There will be other activities taking place in the park during the walk. For the fourth year in a row there will be demonstrations by CASDDA (Canadian Search and Disaster Dogs Association) to show how the dogs are used during disasters.
There will again be a bouncy obstacle course and a cow milking contest game. More activities are in the works and waiting for confirmation.
This is an exciting time to speak with the CASDDA and individuals who have a dog guide in their life, plus a chance to bring a dog to join in on the walking fun.
The walk starts with registration beginning at 1 p.m. and the walk itself beginning at 2 p.m. We are hoping to have at least 25 walkers, possibly more.
We can make this a successful fund raiser with the help of our community. Thank you for helping give needy Canadians, “A New Leash on Life”.
