First Annual 5K Walk
Over 24 service dogs and service dogs to-be participated in person in our virtual 5k on Sunday. People came from near and far to help us put on this event. Thank you for walking along side us in our first ever virtual 5k. There was chaos, there was fun, there were learning moments and there was lots and lots of love. To the recipients who walked with us and virtually, you amaze us endlessly with your perseverance, your determination and your heart. We are honored to be part of your story.
Puppies walked a puppy-K where they said Thank You by walking past our sponsor board with the names of the sponsors for each puppy. Each pup wore a special puppy-K bandana.
Upon completion, each pup did a giveaway, selecting one of their sponsors at random to receive their gift.
Event was held at the Kelsey Arboretum in Boxford, MA

Parkinson's Moving Day, Concord NH
Moving Day is an inspiring and empowering annual fundraising walk event that unites people around the country living with Parkinson’s disease (PD), their care partners and loved ones to help beat PD. Moving Day is more than just a walk. It’s a celebration of movement – proven to help manage Parkinson’s symptoms.
Leading up to the event, participants and teams fundraise to help the Parkinson’s Foundation provide everything people with Parkinson’s need to live better — from lifesaving resources to delivering quality care to more than 196,700 people living with Parkinson’s to improving Parkinson’s treatments through research.
The decision has been made to cancel DogFest 2023. Our focus will be on the fundraising and relocation of SDP.
As we prepare for next year's Dog Fest, enjoy these photos from Dog Fest 2022!
Dog Fest is an annual two-day event gathering of volunteers, staff, camera people, service dog recipients, guests, and, of course, dogs!
