Team Regal's Double Wag-A-Thon

Hi there! Regal and I are so excited to be participating in the Guiding Eyes Wag-A-Thon, a month-long virtual marathon this May, where participants walk the distance of an entire marathon while raising funds and creating awareness for Guiding Eyes for the Blind.

It’s almost impossible to express how much Guiding Eyes has impacted my life. After losing much of my sight in my 20s due to a genetic eye disease, I struggled to figure out who I was in this new way of life. I felt uncomfortable navigating the world, and while I kept moving forward, I missed the old me. Enter Guiding Eyes. Because of the gift of a guide dog, I gained new confidence, independence, and an adventurous spirit. Best of all, I finally felt like me again!

Receiving and working with my first guide dog, Jingles, and my current guide dog, Regal have been some of the best things that have ever happened to me. So, for this reason, one Wag-A-Thon (26.2 miles is not enough. That’s why Regal and I have committed to complete two Wag-a-thons during the month of May! That’s 52.4 miles. And we’re doing this so we can help Guiding Eyes change more lives through the gift of guide dogs.

Please join Team Regal by supporting us as we double-Wag-a-Thon in May; one for Regal and one in honor of Jingles. Our goal is to raise $1,000 to benefit Guiding Eyes. Will you consider donating $1/mile ($52), or $.50/mile ($26), to help us reach our goal?

Any amount will help us reach our goal, and help change the life of someone just like me. Plus, it will ensure you become part of Team Regal for updates, and exclusive team messages :)

Thank you so much!!!

PS - Did you know that every guide dog costs $50,000 to raise, train, and support? And, they’re provided free of charge thanks to your support. Learn more about Guiding Eyes for the Blind by visiting guidingeyes.org
