Welcome to MARIE & LUCA’s WAGATHON Page!



The WAGATHON is a cumulative marathon that you and your dog can do anywhere, at your own pace throughout the month of September. The goal is to hit 26.2 miles before September 30th – 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 who are blind or visually impaired, 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. You can be a part of this life-changing mission by making a donation today!

Thank you for your support!

First week we did well but is still too warm in our area so the daily walks are staying short. Hope to continue and improve daily walks as the days get a little cooler. Thank you to everyone who is supporting us during our wagathon 3 more weeks to go!! Woohoo!!


First couple of days started well….weather a bit warmer than we would hope for but we can work with it. Yesterday, Friday was our first day and we did 2 miles total with Luca and Fabi. This morning Luca behaved great during our 5 miles.


Luca & I are ready for the 2023 Wag-A-Thon!! Thank you so much to everyone who donates for this amazing cause. You are helping so many us with visual impairment. With Gratitude, Marie
