CNIB Guide Dogs Pup Crawl

Welcome to the inaugural CNIB Guide Dogs Pup Crawl! This event is a virtual 5 km and kicks off April 29 in honour of International Guide Dog Day.

The Pup Crawl is about providing you with an opportunity to stay active in a safe way during the COVID-19 pandemic, all while supporting CNIB Guide Dogs in communities across Canada.

Whether you walk, jog, run, dance, skip or crawl, it’s up to you! Please ensure you’re following provincial rules around social and physical distancing. From April 29 to May 29, 2020, complete your 5 km your way. Track your progress on your FitBit or using an app on your smartphone. It’s on the honour system, so no proof is required.

And be part of the PupCrawl community! Post photos and videos of you training for and completing the Pup Crawl using the hashtags #CNIBPupCrawl, #CNIBGuideDogs and #FutureGuideDogs.


Registration for the Pup Crawl is $30. Proceeds will support CNIB Guide Dogs in communities across Canada. Register now!

Participants will receive a race bib via email, and upon completion participants will receive a CNIB Guide Dogs Pup Crawl medal and certificate in the mail.

About CNIB Guide Dogs

People with sight loss often say having a guide dog is a transformational experience. Being part of a guide dog team provides mobility, safety and confidence, leading to increased independence and a sense of connection with the world. We believe everyone who would like to have a guide dog should have that opportunity.

At CNIB Guide Dogs, we raise, train and match dogs with Canadians who are blind or partially sighted. We also raise our voices to ensure people with sight loss have opportunities to live, work and play without barriers. We’re committed to ensuring social attitudes shift to universal acceptance and appreciation for guide dogs. We also provide advocacy support for guide dog handlers across Canada, regardless of where their dogs are trained.
