Laurie and Cliff Carpenter
Well, we are off and walking again...for Southeastern Guide Dog puppies and this
amazing organization that gives a new way of life to the visually impaired and our
veterans in need, at no cost at all to them. SEGD is supported totally thru donations. and
Last year was our fifth very successful year, as Tri-County Pups earned enough money to
sponsor and name TEN puppies. We grew from earning enough for one (Buddy) with
TeamBuddy in 2016 to 10 with Tri-County Pups in 2021. What a jump!
And that accomplishment is thanks to many of you for your
enthusiasm and hard work to raise money, walk for the team, and
make financial donations. So now - we are moving ahead. This
year, we kicked the off the Tri-County walkathon drive with a
memorial fund raiser for my husband, Cliff, an enthusiastic puppy
sitter/camper who loved all SEGD puppies, who passed away
October 15th. We have successfully raised enough to sponsor a
puppy named CLIFFORD. But, we still have a long way to go to
reach our $40,000 team goal.
I so hope that some of you from our past teams and maybe some new
walkers, will join us to walk on National Walkathon Day, April 30th. I will
send out details when Walkathon gets closer.
