Five kilometres. One month. Countless lives changed.  

Get ready for the second annual CNIB Guide Dogs Pup Crawl! Kicking off on April 28 in honour of International Guide Dog Day, this virtual five-kilometre movement event is about getting active in a safe way, all while supporting CNIB Guide Dogs in communities across Canada. 

Whether you walk, jog, run, dance, skip, or crawl, it’s up to you! From April 28 to May 28, 2021, complete your five kilometres your way. Track your progress on your smartwatch, activity tracker, or through an app on your smartphone. It’s on the honour system, so no proof is required.

Remember to stay safe! Always practice proper physical distancing and abide by local public health guidelines.

CNIB Guide Dogs is the only program in Canada that fully covers the cost of owning a guide dog. This means that anyone who wants a guide dog can benefit from one of these incredible partnerships, regardless of their financial situation.
