About This Activity

This year, our 7th annual Paws On The Path FUNdraising Walk takes place in scenic Sunny Vale Park. It starts and ends in the area by Man Made Lake, winding through beautiful trails with several length-of-course options. Whether you walk a half mile or 2 miles, by yourself or with your dog(s), the emphasis is on enjoying the walk and raising money for the homeless guests at the Humane Society of Marathon County which is nestled right next door to the park. Fun for the entire family! Come join us and see why this is the perfect way to spend a Sunday morning!
