3rd Annual Dog Walk-a-thon

Bring your four-legged friend out on Saturday April 27th to 6491 Jeanne d’Arc Blvd N (Convent Glen Shopping Centre) at 10am. This is a rain or shine event (dogs are mostly keen to walk regardless of the weather). We will head out on a 4km walk route together. We’ll end the walk back where we started and there will be a photo booth for you and your pooch hosted by the RBC branch. This event is open to all. Donations will be accepted for the Canadian Cancer Society. Follow our updates here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1908769599233178/
