Description

Share the Vision® Fundraising Dog Walk & Family Fun Day to benefit Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation

Lace up your shoes and leash up your four-legged best friend; Fidelco’s Share the Vision® Fundraising Dog Walk and Family Fun Day returns to Simsbury on Sunday, September 29th. This family-friendly event features vendors, food, K9 demos, a microchip clinic and a concert performance by Little House. Treat your pooch to a professional photo shoot by Carla McElroy Photography for just $5. Proceeds support Fidelco's mission of promoting increased independence to men and women who are blind by providing them with the highest quality German Shepherd Guide Dogs.

For more than half a century, Connecticut’s Fidelco German Shepherd Guide Dogs have been life-changing and life-saving partners to men and women who are blind across North America, including our nation’s blinded military heroes. It takes two years, 15,000 hands-on hours and $45,000 to produce and maintain one Fidelco Guide Dog, and Fidelco provides them at no cost to the clients they serve. To carry out this mission, Fidelco relies on the generosity of its individual and corporate donors and more than 350 volunteers.

Walkers are encouraged to pre-register and set up a personal fundraising page by following the registration link at www.fidelco.org. All dog breeds are welcome at this outdoor event as long as they are leashed.

The Share the Vision® Fundraising Dog Walk and Family Fun Day is held at the Simsbury Performing Arts Center at 22 Iron Horse Boulevard from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sponsorship and vendor opportunities are available; contact info@fidelco.org for more information.
