CCI DogFest Walk’N Roll – Saturday October 10

Canine Companions for Independence (CCI) is sponsoring DogFest Walk ’n Roll Silicon Valley on October 10th (10 am-1pm) at Memorial Park in Cupertino.

DogFest Walk ‘n Roll events are being held in many locations across the U. S. to raise awareness of CCI’s mission to provide life-changing assistance dogs free of charge to people with disabilities and as a major CCI fund raising activity. DogFest is Canine Companions’ signature national event. It is a dog-friendly and family friendly walk and festival. It is open to the public and is free. Support the amazing work CCI does to provide highly-trained assistance dogs to people with disabilities.

Website: http://www.cci.org

The DogFest Walk ‘n Roll is an opportunity to be present with CCI graduates, CCI dogs, CCI volunteers, CCI supporters. Lions and friends can walk, walk with their dog, or just observe (the DogFest part is various dog oriented displays and vendors along with entertainment).

You can join the “Lions Clubs Silicon Valley 4C6” team just by making a donation (just a few clicks and you’re done!). The most fun is being present but you can support the fundraising by being a virtual walker or making a donation through the team.
