days  hours  minutes and  seconds

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 anniversary!

The walk will be held at the same location...Mississauga Valley Park, 1275 Mississauga Valley Blvd., Mississauga. Click here to see a map or click here for written directions.

To download a flyer with all the Toronto Westie Walk info, click here!

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.

To download a pledge form, just click here.

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 all.

Next we participate in some really fun Westie events like our Parade of Rescues followed by our Westie games.
We are adding in a new fun Canadian themed game this year, so get ready!!!

We are again going to have our annual Photo Contest!!!! Please check out 2 new categories!!!!

We will display all the submitted pictures at the Westie walk for everyone to see and we will have our judges make the final decisions! There will be a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place ribbon awarded for each category.

Here are some Photo Contest Rules:
  • Each family can submit a maximum of 3 pictures-we need the name(s) of dog(s) and the owners name with the picture(s)
  • Cut off date for the last pictures to be received will be midnight August 25th, 2017
  • Categories will be:
  1. Canadian Theme: Let's see your Westie doing something truley Canadian...canoeing, playing hockey, enjoying a Tim Horton's...let your imagination go wild!
  2. Most Westie-tude: you all know EXACTLY what this is!!!! hahahha
  3. Action Shot: Let's see your Westie in action!
  4. Best Dressed or Costume: we just love these shots.
  5. Single Westie in photo: kinda speaks for itself...
  6. Multiple Westies in photo: the more the merrier!!!
and of course, a Best in Show winner!

Please e-mail all your pictures to: westiesinneed@gmail.com

So grab those cameras and start taking some pictures of those cute Westies we know you all have!

We will also have lots of great Westie items for sale at the walk, a donation draw table and a silent auction...so there are tons of things to look at and buy!!! We finish the day with lots and lots of prizes for our participants.

In true Scottish (and Canadian!!!) fashion, the Westie Walk and Fun Day takes place rain or shine. In the event of rain, the schedule of activities may be modified, but the Westie Walk will not be cancelled or rescheduled.

If you are a Facebook kinda person...we have a page with all the Westie Walk information that you may want to join...click here to go to FaceBook/Toronto Westie Walk!!

This year we are asking that as many folks as possible have their Walk Registration form filled out before they arrive at the walk...this makes our registration line move so much faster. Please click here to download your registration form and simply fill it out and bring it to the walk, along with your donation, on September 10th and you will speed through the registration!

If you would like to be on our e-mail list to get all the Toronto Walk info, or if you would like any other information, please feel free to e-mail me directly at Corrie@WestiesinNeed.ca or call me at (905) 853-5513

So bring your lawn chair, tell all your friends and we sure hope to see you there on September 10th! It's gonna be a fun-filled Westie-ful day!
