Virtual Walk FAQs

A virtual event is a walking or running event that you can complete anytime and anyplace! The best part of a virtual event is convenience - you decide what works best for you and your pup. 
No fee is required to register. Though do set a fundraising goal and share your walk fundraiser page with your friends, family and co-workers to donate in your honor or join your team and fundraise themselves. 
No---This is your walk to make your own. We are just happy you are participating and supporting a great cause. Ps- we do hear some cats like to go on walks! 
Around the block, your entire neighborhood, your favorite trail or on a treadmill-- the choice is yours. 
As soon as you register for the walk -- you are good to go. The walk runs until November 30, 2020. 
The Virtual Dog Walk Day Celebration Program is a video that will serve as the closing ceremony for our walk. It's a chance to celebrate your hard work and learn more about K9s4COPs from the comfort of your own home. We will send out a special link prior to the event and it can also be viewed on the K9s4COPs Facebook page or on this Virtual Dog Walk Event page.
