The ALX Dog Walk is right around the corner, don’t miss out!

What do you get when you bring together a community of adorable dogs with people who love to care for the environment and do good works?  Easy… the ALX Dog Walk fundraiser on Saturday, April 2, 2022!

Dogs of every kind and from all over the DMV will gather in historic Old Town Alexandria for a 2-mile dog walk to raise funds to help beautify and protect the City’s environment and educate citizens about best sustainability practices. 

Our Honorary Emcee, Chuck Bell, NBC Storm Team 4 Meteorologist, along with our Honorary Co-Chairs, Mayor Justin Wilson and Monte Durham of “Say Yes to the Dress Atlanta,” will help kick-off the event and celebrate at the post-walk awards party.

On Walk Day, participants gather in Oronoco Bay Park in Old Town Alexandria, pick-up their t-shirt and awesome goodie bag, and start the Walk at 8:00 am.   Walkers follow along the breathtaking Waterfront Walk, parade by judges at the Robinson Landing pier, and return to the Park for a lively awards celebration of prizes, treats, music, and the best dog watching ever!

Dogs will compete for:  Funniest Personality, Best Groomed, Fluffiest Tail, Biggest Ears, and Coolest Costume (plastic free, recycled/upcycled costumes only!). Winners receive a $100 gift card from The Dog Store in Del Ray.

DASH Bus has generously offered a “DASH Doggie Shuttle” to help transport walkers and their dogs to and from the event!

This is a plastic-free/recycled plastic event – #BYOB – Bring Your Own Bottle!
