Dear amazing friends, family, and peers,

Guiding Eyes for the Blind is an organization that changes lives - one pup at a time. Please consider making a donation to support our Wag-a-Thon Team page! The Wag-A-Thon is a cumulative marathon that you and your dog can do anywhere, at your own pace over the month of September. The goal is to hit 26.2 miles by September 30 – all while raising critical funds to support Guiding Eyes for the Blind’s mission to provide guide dogs to people with vision loss. It’s an opportunity for people and dogs alike to stay active and do good.

Guiding Eyes for the Blind changes lives by connecting amazing people with extraordinary dogs. For individuals with vision loss, a Guiding Eyes dog means freedom, confidence, and the opportunity to experience all of life's adventures - big and small. From Home Training to Specialized Training to Running Guides and more, Guiding Eyes' pioneering programs are individualized to each student. Together, these dogs are paired with just the right student - and both their lives are forever changed.

Amore (6A320) and I have been together since February of 2021 and we make a great team! She is a fun-loving pup who enjoyed meeting new people, taking long walks around campus, and playing with her fellow Columbus Region pup! Amore is the first puppy that I have raised through Guiding Eyes and she has made such a positive impact on not only my life! I have had such a fun time watching her grow and mature over the past 8 months and I cannot wait to see what awesome things life has in store for her!

Please consider joining Amore and I on our Wag-A-Thon journey and become a part of this life-changing mission by making a donation today!

With Love,

Kaitlyn & Amore

All smiles because we have surpassed our mile goal by 10 whole miles!!

Took a 2.5 mile walk in the pouring rain on 9/21, have to be used to walking in the rain so that one day I can guide in the rain.

Walking to class has definitely helped us add to our mile goal this month!
