This PAWGUST Walk or Run to Help Raise Funds for Guide Dogs

Established in 2018, PAWGUST is Guide Dogs biggest and longest-running mass participation event, raising over $4.94 million since inception. A fun yet challenging event, PAWGUST calls on participants, to walk or run for at least 30 minutes every day during the month of August.

By braving the cold every day this August and asking family and friends to sponsor you, you are making your mark on your health and wellbeing and helping creating a world where everyone who needs a Guide Dog, has a Guide Dog.  It’s a fun yet challenging event to get you and your dog (if you have one!) physically active during the cold winter month of August. The best bit about it though is that you can complete the challenge anywhere, anytime! You can walk or run on your own, with friends, organise walking work meetings or head out on your lunch break.

Everyone can easily join in and with an option to set up different internal department teams or one team for a branch, PAWGUST provides the perfect opportunity to start a workplace challenge.

All funds raised will help Guide Dogs SA/NT continue to provide life-changing services to their clients and families. Guide Dogs aim is to empower people with vision impairment, children with autism, and their families, to find their way to freedom and independence.

PAWGUST is a fun and safe way to engage remote workforces and encourages staff to take care of their health and wellbeing while demonstrating commitment to Guide Dogs to support people with blindness and low vision. 

Signing up is simple, just head to the website to register yourself or a team.
