“Bark For Life is the canine counterpart to Relay For Life, a very family-friendly movement,” explained Victoria Andrews, event development coordinator for the American Cancer Society. “Cancer patients often receive a great source of comfort from their pet during their cancer journey. These events celebrate our canine caregivers, just as we honor other family members who support their loved ones who are fighting cancer during Relay For Life.”
Event organizers are still recruiting pooches and their owners to take part in the events. Registration is $20 for the first dog, which includes a purple Bark For Life bandana. Individual fundraising is encouraged.
