WALKATHON 2023

TOGETHER we’re changing the world, one dog and one life at a time.



We can't wait to see you at Walkathon!

Bring your family, bring your dogs, bring your friends and bring your friends' dogs to Walkathon! We’re looking forward to celebrating your fundraising success at our in-person Walkathon events taking place in the spring of 2023 on the Suncoast, in Tampa, St. Petersburg, Orlando, and Gainesville, Florida.

Additional community-driven events will take place in select Florida locations and beyond. The in-person Walkathon events are free, family-friendly events that include a 3K walk and a Waggin' Tails Festival with lively music, food, vendors, and fun activities.

Walkathon Raffle

Walkathon wouldn't be complete without the thrill of our raffle. $1,000 winning raffle tickets will be drawn live at the Suncoast, St. Petersburg, Tampa, and Orlando Walkathons. One lucky person will win the $10,000 grand prize raffle drawing, which will take place on Friday, June 2, 2023 at 1 pm (EST) and will be live streamed on the Southeastern Guide Dogs Facebook page. To learn more about the raffle drawing or to buy raffle tickets, visit the Raffle Ticket page.

Why Walkathon?

Walkathon is Southeastern Guide Dogs' largest fundraiser of the year. Proceeds help us breed, raise, train, and match our amazing dogs with people with vision loss, veterans with disabilities, and children with significant challenges such as vision loss or the loss of a parent in the military.
