Dog Walk May 26th 2024

On May 26th 2024, over 25 dog walkers and their dogs joined he non-dog walkers as they braved the cold, dreary weather to help raise over $1,200.00 to support the Dog Guides of Canada. All these donations will go directly to the Lions Foundation who will provide 7 guide dogs in the support of various disabilities including vision, hearing, epilepsy, autism and other general disabilities. It is important t note that these guide dogs are provided free to the applicants!

A big thanks to all the lions volunteers and the many participants who made this event so successful.

Our Gabriola Lions dog walk commitment has been active for over a decade with the initial walk initiated by Lion Linda Olsen many years ago. The walk continued with the support from dear Lion Joan Ensor and now with the support of Lion Miriam Cochrane.
