Would you walk 70 miles over four days to raise awareness and funds for TWO Long Island non-for-profit organizations? The answer is yes for Irene Rabinowitz & her dog Sydney!  Check out this incredible Pet Celebration Event taking place in Montauk, Friday October 5th, to cheer her & Sydney as they begin their journey!


‘A Journey Four Paws’ is Irene Rabinowitz challenge to walk 70-miles with her dog Sydney from Barks-n-Bubbles Boutique in Centereach to Montauk over a four day period on Columbus Day Weekend.  Irene walks to benefit two organizations close to her heart. ‘A Journey Four Paws’ which raises money and awareness for Central Suffolk Paws, and the Long Island chapter of the Arthritis Foundation. Irene’s goal is to raise $10,000 to donate equally to the Arthritis foundation and to and Central Suffolk Paws.



The walk will start Friday, October 5, with a kick off celebration at Barks-n-Bubbles after which Irene will walk approx 22 miles into Riverhead. On Saturday, October 6th, she continues through Riverhead and head to the Hamptons. On Sunday, October 7th, Irene & Sydney will walk from Southampton to Amagansett, and on  Monday, October 8th, Irene will walk the final miles into Montauk! Irene will be accompanied the entire walk by her dog Sydney.
