A Kolora woman is doing her bit to raise money for guide dogs.
Megan Bridger-Darling has signed up to Pawgust - a month-long fundraiser - to help raise much-needed funds to help train guide dogs.
Ms Bridger-Darling, who moved to Kolora from Melbourne a year ago, will walk for 30 minutes each day with her border collie cross Bracks.
The daily exercise is a bigger challenge for Ms Bridger-Darling than most.
Two years ago she was in a wheelchair for two years after suffering a horror break in her right leg.
Ms Bridger-Darling was walking home from the supermarket when she slipped and fell.
"I was in a wheelchair for quite a number of months during lockdown," she said.
Her surgery was delayed due to the pandemic.
Ms Bridger-Darling now has pins in her leg. "It was a long recovery," she said.
One thing the pandemic and the fall did inspire Ms Bridger-Darling to do was move.
"I decided to buy a dog and move to the country," she said.
Ms Bridger-Darling and Bracks will be walking every day in August.
"Rain, hail or shine, this August I will be pounding the pavement every single day," she said.
She hopes to raise $1000. Donations can be made here.
