Westies in Need (WiN) Westie Rescue Walk and Fun Day
WHEN: Sunday September 15th 2019
Registration begins at 11:00 am
Hello! My name is Corrie Yeoman and I am organizing the Westie Walk and Fun Day this year on Sunday September 15th 2019. Registration opens at 11:00 am. We will have lots of vendors, our Westies in Need sales table and so much more to do and see, before our official Walk portion of our event begins at about noon. Then after the short 15 minute walk, it will be time start the games etc!
The Westie Walk this year is going to have a VERY special theme because this year we celebrate our 10th anniversary as a rescue!
The walk will be held at the same location...Mississauga Valley Park, 1275 Mississauga Valley Blvd., Mississauga, Ontario. Click here to see a map or click here for written directions.
Save Time! Fill out your Walk Registration Form
This year we are asking that as many folks as possible have their Walk Registration form filled out before they arrive at the walk...this makes our registration line move so much faster.
Please click the button below to download your registration form (Microsoft Word document) and simply fill it out and bring it to the walk, along with your donation, on September 15 th and you will speed through the registration!
Win Big Prizes!
This is WiN's MAJOR fund-raiser, so we ask everyone to make donations the day of the walk or get pledges beforehand.
We have some great prizes for the folks who collect the most $ and who travel the farthest distance, etc.
The day begins with registration at 11:00 am, followed by pictures taken of each participant, then a short walk around the park, led by our very own Bagpipers will begin about noon-ish.
The 'walk' is approximately 15 minutes and is very relaxed. There is no requirement to participate in the 'walk' in order to take part in the rest of the event. You may participate in as little/much of the 'walk' as you and your dog(s) can handle - or not walk at all.
Next we participate in some really fun Westie events like our Parade of Rescues followed by our Westie games.
