This year’s second annual CNIB Guide Dogs Pup Crawl was a tremendous success! Since it launched on International Guide Dog Day, April 28, more than 230 Canadians laced up their sneakers and got active to complete the virtual five-kilometre fundraiser.

Double the impact for CNIB Guide Dogs

When Mary and John Crocker first heard about the Pup Crawl, they instantly knew that they wanted to do something special. That’s when we received their fantastic commitment: to match fundraising efforts dollar for dollar, up to $50,000!

We are so grateful for Mary and John Crocker's generous support – not only for their commitment to match your fundraising efforts, but for all the wonderful work they've done to support CNIB Guide Dogs in the past.

In total, more than 1,000 people pledged their support, raising more than $112,000 to cover the costs of raising, training and matching guide dogs with Canadians across the country. What a fantastic success!
