During August 2019, over 11,000 fundraisers walked with their furry friends for 30 minutes over 30 days. We raised a huge $1,034,503 nationally which will help us to breed, raise and train 20 Guide Dog puppies across the country.
You don’t have to wait for August every year to fundraise though – there are lots of fun and wonderful ways to raise much-needed funds at any time of the year!
You could host an event, pledge your birthday or wedding favours, sell something, fundraise at work or school, or honour a loved one and give a donation in their memory.
To get you inspired, here are some of the things that other people have done:
NSW Siberian Express, a dog sled club, raised $800 by getting their club members to dress up in fancy dress for their dog sled event.
Another supporter, Jose, proudly took part in the Blackmores Fun Run

Thank you for all that you do to help people with low vision and blindness live full, independent lives.
