SSD Ellie is working hard on her loose leash walking. She’ll need it in just under three months when she walks in the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community on May 16 at Harrisburg Area Community College.
Susquehanna Service Dogs is one of 46 organizations participating in the Highmark Walk. Last year, 178 people joined us for the walk and helped raise $22,994!
This year, our goal is $30,000. One hundred percent of the money raised will go directly to SSD because Highmark Blue Shield generously underwrites the cost of the walk. That means that every dollar you donate and raise will help train dogs like little Ellie to become working service dogs, like SSD Aussie, SSD Dingo, SSD Newman, and SSD Vicki who are learning to work with their new partners right now.
These service dogs are changing lives and you can help by joining the Highmark Walk.
As a thank you, we’re giving the first 100 people to sign up a coupon to Perkins, donated by Perkins Restaurant and Bakery.
How can you participate?
- Sign up for the walk, raise money, and walk on May 16.
- Be a virtual walker. This is a great way to participate, even if you can’t make it on May 16!
- Make a donation.
We hope you’ll join Ellie and the rest of us for the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community!
