Saturday May 1, 2021 - Monday May 31, 2021

This one-day event was so successful last year, we’ve decided to expand it to include the entire month of May! What better way to get out in the beautiful spring weather and shake off those COVID doldrums, while helping our precious Goldens at the same time?

 Fathers and sons, daughters and moms,

Walking with Goldens and raising some funds!

For the month of May, help us come together while we’re apart and join us on our second “independent” Cabin Fever Reliever. You can walk, run, stroll or ride your bike ~  in your neighbourhood, in the country or forest, on trails, in your backyard or even in your house with all the windows open! You can participate in this event from ANYWHERE in the world.

Once you’ve decided on your activity, simply commit to a goal and ask your friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you. You could set one goal for the entire month or change it up with a different goal each week… such as bike-riding one week, walking the next, running on a treadmill the third week and swimming the fourth week (brrr) – whatever you prefer.

Wherever you decide to walk, run, jog, trot, stroll, saunter, dance, rollerblade, bike, do cartwheels, limbo, waltz…just get moving! Whatever you do, please comply with physical distancing and only go to permitted areas…and most importantly, have fun! You can choose your own distance, count your steps, or base it on time. And naturally, include your furry family members.

Here are the details:

DATE:  From May 1st to 31st, 2021

TIME:  Anytime…totally up to you

WHERE:  Anywhere…you choose.
