The Corgi Walk Is Going Virtual!
Join Corgis Around the Country in Raising Money for the Corgi Assistance Fund
The 14th annual Corgi Walk in the Pearl in Portland, Oregon had to be canceled this year because of COVID restrictions for gathering in large groups. This year, the annual Corgi Walk will take place as a Virtual Walk on Saturday, August 21, 2021. The Virtual Walk is for all Corgis in the U.S.
The Corgi Assistance Fund is the fundraising arm of the Corgi Walk in the Pearl and the Virtual Corgi Walk. The Fund is an Oregon Nonprofit Corporation. Corgi owners who have registered may access resources to help their Corgis with serious medical or behavioral issues. There are no financial requirements for applicants.
