For the second year in a row, the Georgian Triangle Humane Society (GTHS) had no choice but to turn their popular in-person event into a virtual one that could be enjoyed by participants far and wide while ensuring safety guidelines were followed. Walkathon week took place from June 20–26. Once again, the South Georgian Bay community stepped up to the plate despite the reimagination of this fundraiser. Participants had the opportunity to choose their favourite activities; some hiked, biked and swam, while others kayaked, ran and organized their own yoga-thons.
The GTHS is grateful to the participants, sponsors, committee members and cheerleaders of this event. Without any government funding, the organization relies on fundraising initiatives such as the Walkathon Your Way to provide innovative, accessible programs and compassionate services to the pets and people of our community.
