2nd Annual Fundraiser Walk
Date: Saturday, September 15th (Rain or Shine)
Time: You are welcome to arrive and walk at any time between 10 am-2pmthat day.
Location: Lakeview Pavilion at the Dry Brooks entrance of Blue Marsh Lake.
For GPS: 1364 Palisades Drive, Leesport, Pa 19533
Note: When you enter the park from Palisades Drive, go through the admission gates and stay straight. The pavilion will be the last one on your left before you reach the water.
Sponsorships- You are encouraged to raise sponsorships for the walk. You can decide if you want to do it by-the-mile or by a lump sum donation. You can raise your funds from friends, family, co-workers, or even just self-sponsor. The donations will go towards Greytful Hearts fostering expenses.
Where are the donations going?- In 2017 Greytful Hearts fostered and adopted out 52 Greyhounds. For each foster we take into our group, the expenses we incur include but are not limited to: haul fees to get them here, vetting fees (spay/neuter/dental/vaccinations), food, martingale collars, leashes, muzzles, ID tags, deworming medication, flea/tick preventatives. The cost we incur for each foster exceeds our adoption fee, so having fundraisers such as the Walkathon helps Greytful Hearts continue our mission of finding loving, forever home for retired, racing Greyhounds.
Money Due– Sponsorship money will be due on the morning of the walk. Please consider writing a personal check for any cash sponsorships you collect so that we are not exchanging large amounts of cash in the park.
Lunchwill be provided around noontime for all walkers who raise the minimum of $50 in sponsorships. There is a pavilion with tables, but you may wish to bring extra folding chairs and/or picnic blankets if you plan to stay for lunch.
Duration of the Walk- You are encouraged to walk to your comfort level. We will be providing a map with suggested routes, but you are also free to explore on your own. Our pavilion is also located next to a ¼ mile sensory trail that is handicap/stroller accessible. You may decide if you want to walk with a pack, or head out alone, it is entirely up to you. Park Rules require that ALL DOGS must be leashed around developed areas. Please pick-up after your pets!
