Woods Humane Society's Wiggle Waggle Walk fundraiser goes virtual

Posted at 8:36 AM, Sep 01, 2020

The Woods Humane Society in San Luis Obispo County is turning its Wiggle Waggle Walk campaign into a virtual event.

Organizers say anyone, anywhere can take part and there are all kinds of ways for the community to participate. From walking, running, biking, kayaking, or even strolling.

Community members can sign up for themselves or as part of team and then set your challenge for both fundraising and distance. Your supporters can pledge for each mile you run, each hour you kayak or simply donate in honor of your participation.

The event takes place from Sept. 1 through Oct. 31. Organizers will put on many different events throughout the two months, including 5K socially-distanced meet-ups, weekly challenges, a virtual costume contest, activity tracking, fun giveaways, fundraiser prizes, and a virtual pet fair.

This is the 28th Annual Wiggle Waggle Walk event and their goal is to raise $45,000. All proceeds help find loving homes for all the animals sheltered at the Woods Humane Society in San Luis Obispo County.

To sign up, visit this website. Every registered walker receives a Woods Humane Society face mask, and if you fundraise $50 you will earn a limited-edition Wiggle Waggle Walk t-shirt.
