Support Walkathon by Sponsoring a Puppy
Looking for a fun and engaging way to support Southeastern Guide Dogs and Walkathon? Sponsor a Puppy! Starting at $19 a month—or a one-time gift of $228—puppy sponsors receive regular photos and Pupdates as your puppy grows and learns.
You can even sponsor a puppy as a gift for someone else. If you'd like a Walkathon fundraiser to receive credit for your gift, be sure to include the fundraiser's name when signing up to sponsor a puppy.

Volunteer at Walkathon
Putting on a Walkathon is no small feat. We are always on the lookout for dedicated volunteers to help behind the scenes.

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.
