One of the keystones of our work at Mending Hearts for Mason is our first annual Dog Walk Fundraiser, “A Mile in Memory.” Participants and their dogs come together to walk for a cause. This event serves as a powerful symbol of our communal commitment to understanding and support.
The annual walk not only raises crucial funds for our initiatives but also fosters a sense of community, solidarity, and hope. Each stride taken by our walkers signifies a step forward in the fight against suicide and mental health stigmatization.
A fun time for the whole family AND man’s best friend(s). Dogs should dress in their most festive Halloween costume (optional, of course).
No dog? Just come out and walk for the cause!

Get ready for a doggone good time! LakewoodAlive’s 16th Annual Spooky Pooch Parade takes place on Saturday, October 14, from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. at Madison Park in Lakewood’s Birdtown neighborhood.
Sponsored by Ken Ganley Subaru, the family-friendly Spooky Pooch Parade consists of a free-to-attend festival at Madison Park, a parade along Madison Avenue and surrounding streets and an awards presentation. A favorite autumn tradition for Northeast Ohio dog lovers, this community festival represents a one-of-a-kind event within the region, providing a tail-wagging good time for canine and human guests alike.
While free to attend, registration is needed to march in the parade. Pre-registration is $10 per dog and day-of registration is $15 per dog. Multiple dog discounts are available with pre-registration only. For example, if you are registering 3 dogs, please choose the "Pre-Registration for 3 Dogs" option. Humans are free.
