The Seeing Eye Doggy Dash's 6th event is presented by FreshPet and will once again feature our popular USATF certified 5k course with awards for top finishers, and all walk and 5k pre-registrants get a free t-shirt! This is a USATF sanctioned event. Come celebrate Blindness Awareness month this October with our 5k run and walk (t-shirts available to event day registrants while supplies last). We will also offer the Doggy Pageant with 5 categories which includes a costume contest - dress up and walk with your dog, or wear your costume in the 5k! We'll have gift basket raffles, free face painter and caricature artist, and a DJ to provide entertainment. You may run or walk as an individual, or invite your friends, family or colleagues to participate by creating a Doggy Dash team. Turn your participation into a fundraiser and be eligible for prizes!

What is the Seeing Eye mission?

Susan shares her story about partnering with Logan, her Seeing Eye dog. Her genuine story is heart-warming and illustrates how The Seeing Eye's mission is changing lives throughout North America; and as a supporter of The Seeing Eye, you are part of that success. All proceeds from the Doggy Dash directly support The Seeing Eye mission to create life-changing partnerships just like Susan and Logan.
