BluePath’s mission is to provide autism service dogs, offering safety, companionship and opportunities for independence. In these uncertain times, our expertly-trained dogs are providing extraordinary comfort and stability.
Your participation in the Virtual Walkathon helps to ensure our mission extends beyond the pandemic - and that we can continue to better the world for children with autism and their families.
How it’ll work:On October 3rd, we’ll come together for an online kick-off at 10am EST. Then we’ll head out to walk in our own communities, snapping photos and videos along the way. Our usual walk route is three miles, but we recommend walking, running, (or skipping) any distance that makes you happy!
How to get started:Register here to receive your event tee shirt and for the opportunity to order additional shirts at reduced pricing. (New shirt colors this year!) Your registration fee supports BluePath’s mission (thank you!) and provides access to the online kick-off event. Note that during registration, you can create a team or join an existing team.
Get your network involved:After you register, set up your fundraising page and ask for support by sharing on social media and via email. Download and print this selfie sign (below) and post photos on your social platforms using the hashtag #WalkTheBluePath. Send us a copy, too, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
