When: Saturday, June 23 at the WHS (45 Hurst Way). 10 a.m. -4 p.m.

Checking In

Check-in is located at the Registration Tent next to the Lyric Theatre (see 2018 map). This is where you can turn in all of your collected donations and receive any fundraising prizes you have earned. *If you have done any online fundraising, please bring a printout of your donations page, or a smartphone that can display your fundraising total.

You SHOULD check in at the registration tent if:

  • You have cash or cheque pledges to be handed in.
  • You have raised enough money to qualify for an fundraising prize (and have not already picked it up).
  • You already turned in donations and picked up your prize, but have a few extra donations that you collected after to turn in.
  • You didn’t receive your park map and participation wristband in the mail.
  • You haven’t already registered to participate in Paws in Motion.
  • You have cash, cheque, or credit card donations to make to the WHS.

You DON’T NEED TO check in at the registration tent if:

  • You have already turned in all of your donations and picked up your fundraising prize prior to the event.
  • You received your participant wristband in the mail.

Pro Tip: Avoid the line-up on event day, and allow yourself a bit more time to sleep in by dropping off your donations BEFORE June 24 at the WHS. We can accept your collected donations and award fundraising prizes two weeks before the event.

Walking the Walk

The walk portion of Paws in Motion will officially begin at 10:30AM. Watch for the giant WHS flag waving at the back of Lyric Field and follow along!

You can walk the full 2.5km route or take the 1.75km shortcut (watch for shortcut signs along the way).

Keep an eye out for Paw Stop activities along the walk (see activity list on our map). Your participant wristband will get you treats and freebies where your pet can stop for an activity and a refreshing drink of water. Wristbands will be mailed out to participants in their welcome package.

All pets are welcome at Paws in Motion, but they must be on a leash.

We are pleased to have the services of Scoopy Doo on site. However, please be a responsible pet owner and pick up after your pet.

Children or pets who are lost or found should be taken to Lyric Theatre.
