Burlington Humane Society’s first ever virtual Spook Walk!

Join us virtually for Spook Walk 2020!


You can join in the fun by walking, running or rolling 5km in your neighbourhood while raising money for the animals at Burlington Humane Society! You can take part in this event from anywhere in the world. Once you sign up as an individual or team (and pay the $20 tax deductible registration), you can fundraise online or in person. Between October 17th and Halloween, we encourage you to get out there in your costume and walk, run or roll! If you have pets, make sure they get in on the fun too! Dogs can join in outside and indoor pets could do laps with you or complete an obstacle course! You can register and fundraise at any time between October 1st and November 7th.

Everyone who registers receives a certificate of participation via email. Remember to indicate your pet’s name if they’re walking too, so that we can include them in your certificate!


To register, please visit our CanadaHelps registration page:
