2022 Suncoast Walkathon

Team Sammy

Did you know that Southeastern Guide Dogs breeds, raises, and trains some of the finest guide dogs and service dogs in the world? The puppies are adorable, but to witness these amazing dogs in training is nothing short of miraculous. Thanks to the intelligence and fine training of these dogs, people with vision loss, veterans with disabilities, and children facing significant challenges find the freedom, confidence, and independence they need.

I am a recipient of my second guide dog, Sammy, from Southeastern Guide Dogs and hoping next year to receive my third dog after Sammy retires. The idependence I have gained since having a guide dog has been tremendous. I don't feel like I have to be in tow to my wife and I can go out and do things independantly. SEGD has given me back my freedom & dignity! 
Southeastern Guide Dogs relies 100% on private donations and doesn't charge students and veterans for their services, I decided to participate in their biggest fundraiser of the year, the Walkathon. I've formed a team and set an ambitious Walkathon fundraising goal and am excited to contribute to the life changing mission of Southeastern Guide Dogs. I hope you can either come and join my team or please be as generous as able to this wonderful cause. Thank you! Ed
