Worldwide Event to be held September 23 to support Therapy Animal Program
— C. Annie Peters, Pet Partners CEO
BELLEVUE, WA, UNITED STATES, September 1, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — Fundraising is underway for the Pet Partners sixth annual World’s Largest Pet Walk presented by Wellness Pet Company. On September 23, hundreds of therapy animal supporters will lace up their walking shoes, grab their leashes and pet strollers, and walk in support of the Pet Partners Therapy Animal Program, which benefits millions of people with the love and comfort of therapy animal visits in schools, senior centers, libraries, hospitals, and many other places across the country and around the world.
Now in its sixth consecutive year, the 2023 World’s Largest Pet Walk encourages participants and their pets to walk at any time and in any location on Saturday, September 23. The event is different from many fundraising walks, in that everyone will have the opportunity to participate and fundraise in the way that works best for them, whether it’s a solo hike or large community event.
“We are thankful for our walkers and supporters. It’s still not too late to register,” says C. Annie Peters, President & CEO of Pet Partners. “The World’s Largest Pet Walk is a great opportunity for anyone who loves their pet to get out and walk and show their support for the pets who are volunteering as therapy animals throughout the year.”
Those interested in supporting walkers can visit worldslargestpetwalk.org to learn more about the walk and how to take part. This includes the opportunity to browse participating individual walkers and walk teams to support them by making a donation. These vital funds allow Pet Partners to continue their mission of improving human health and well-being through the human-animal bond. Pet Partners encourages everyone to share information about the walk on social media using the hashtag #WorldsLargestPetWalk.
