We are in this together, just six feet apart! We are adjusting this event to include everyone, everywhere. Each day 22 veterans take their own life – let’s honor them during this walk. We know that service dogs save lives – we have veteran partners that have told us their DFOB service dog saved their life! Help us raise money to continue training service dogs for our wounded soldiers!

Grab your dog (or favorite human) and walk for 22 minutes. We have spaced the event over the three-day Memorial Day weekend to help people practice social distancing – we don’t want everyone out trying to walk at the same time. Please follow all CDC guidelines including staying six feet from other walkers and dogs. Walk at your own pace, but feel free to jog or run if you want to kick it up a notch.

Snap some photos of your participation and post them to our Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/237564960926828/ . Please use the hashtag #DFOBwalk across all social media platforms. Be sure to check out the pages for pictures of our service dogs in training participating as well.
