Paws & Think is participating in this year’s Walking For Dreams Indianapolis fundraising walk on the afternoon of Sunday, August 16th. Our volunteers and supporters are creating teams to walk and raise money to support our programs. You can support Paws & Think by participating as a walker or by donating to the walk. If you would like to participate in the walk, you have two options:

  1. Attend the Indianapolis walk along the Canal downtown starting at Buggs Temple (337 West 11th Street) between Meridian and Dr. Martin Luther King Drive.
  2. Participate “virtually” by walking wherever you would like and using a fitness app to track your walk. We challenge you to walk 3.5K or for 45 minutes. We recommend WoofTrax to track your walk, a free app that allows you to earn points that turn into money you can donate to Paws & Think at no cost to you!

We recommend a goal of $100 per person if you choose to participate in the walk. If you raise $125 you will receive a t-shirt. Note: If you raise enough for a shirt, you’ll have the option to pick your shirt up from the Clothes With a Cause shop at 14300 Clay Terrace Blvd, Suite 105, Carmel, IN and receive a FREE GIFT along with it!
