Hello! My name is Corrie Yeoman and I am organizing
the Toronto Westie Walk and Fun Day this year on Sunday September 10th, 2017.
Our event this year is going to have a VERY
Canadian theme this year as we celebrate Canada and our 150th
The walk will be held at the same
location...Mississauga Valley Park, 1275 Mississauga Valley Blvd., Mississauga.

This is WiN's MAJOR fund-raiser, so
we ask everyone to make donations the day of the walk or get pledges
beforehand. We have some great prizes for the folks who collect the most $ and
who travel the farthest distance, etc.
The day begins with registration at 11:00 am,
followed by pictures taken of each participant, then a short walk around the
park, led by our very own Bagpipers.
The 'walk' is approximately 15
minutes and is very relaxed. There is no requirement to participate in the
'walk' in order to take part in the rest of the event. You may participate in
as little/much of the 'walk' as you and your dog(s) can handle - or not walk at
