Dogs Do Count:

St. Pete Walkathon Smashes World Record


Community News

Southeastern Guide Dogs of Palmetto made history on Feb. 23 at the St. Petersburg Walkathon as a world record-breaking 885 dogs came together to walk and show off their bandanas, shattering the previous milestone of 860 bandana-wearing dogs at an event in Scotland.

Our wonderful friends and volunteers, both two- and four-legged, showed up in St.
Petersburg when it counted to support our superhero guide and service dogs that save the day for the people who need them – those with vision loss and veterans with disabilities,” said Southeastern Guide Dogs CEO Titus Herman.

The Walkathons raise more than a million dollars each year to support cost free, life-transforming programs. The bandana challenge continues at the April 27 Walkathon in Tampa, or join the April 13 Fort Myers Walkathon for fun (no world record attempt). Learn more at
