Walk Safe

It’s important to remember to always practice social distancing while walking outside, and always remain 6-8 feet from anyone who does not live in your own home. Please follow the restrictions and regulations put forth by your state, city, town and village.

In these uncertain times, we wanted to provide an activity that can be done safely while practicing social distancing. Participating in our Virtual Walk gives our animal lovers and adopters the chance to do something positive and active, while raising crucial funds for homeless animals that need your support – now more than ever.

Whether you walk alone or form a virtual team, it’s good to know we can always be together even while remaining apart. You can recruit team members from inside and outside your home. You can ask friends, family members, and coworkers to join your virtual team – just be sure to practice social distancing. Here are a few tips to try…

  • Eye Spy: Make a plan to walk the same route at different times. The first group can make a list of ten things they saw on their walk, and the next group has to find them. Then the second group can do the same for the third, and so on.
  • Walking on Sunshine: Create a playlist and share your favorite tunes to get your team motivated on their walks. Maybe make a video showing your dance moves along the way.
  • Sidewalk Parade: You can walk with all your team members when you remain 6-8 feet apart. Take this opportunity to spread your fundraising message with a sidewalk parade through your town. This will not only motivate you, but it will cheer up friends and neighbors!

Communication is key. Keeping in touch with your team will help motivate you all to reach your goals, and most importantly keep your spirits up during this difficult time. Using FaceTime, Skype, or other video conferencing tools is  a great way to stay connected. Social media is also a fantastic way to communicate,  as well as get the word out about your fundraising efforts. You can even link your fundraising page to your Facebook page. This is easy to do from your participant center and helps increase fundraising while sharing your story.
