This is the plan for 2021!
October is Guide Dog month, this time beginning its 90th birthday year and you can take up the challenge of the 5.65 km (or 3.5 miles) route from North Pier (FY1 1NE) to The Sandcastle Waterpark (FY4 1BB) – or the other way if you prefer. Everyone is welcome runners, walkers, toddlers, pram pushers, dog walkers, wheel chair and mobility scooter users. Fancy dress is not necessary but if you wish to dress up with Glow items to brighten your outfit and walk with friends please do so. The beauty of having a month to complete the challenge is that you can choose the weather and it up to you when you can fit it in to your time schedule and you can take part any time of day on any day of the week. The promenade between the North and South Pier structures, providing the weather is good, give great views as the sun sets over the Irish Sea on one side and the Famous Illuminations begin to shine on the other.
The Planned Official Walk Date (with optimum tides) is Friday October 8th, beginning at North Pier at 7pm, which is when Guide Dog Owners, Puppy Raisers and friends will be setting off informally
There’s no need to register. All we ask is that you take some photographs at the start and finish and share them with us at our Facebook page (Facebook: Fylde Coast Guide Dogs) so we can spread the word and then please go on our Just Giving page www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Glo-Walkies2021 to make a donation or pay in sponsorship. We suggest £10 per adult and £5 per child as this is the usual cost but the amount is entirely up to you. You can also ask your supporters to sponsor you and donate too if you wish.
