Bark for Life
The American Cancer Society Bark For Life is a fundraising event honoring the life-long contributions of our canine caregivers. These dogs demonstrate unconditional love, joy, compassion, and no judgments of cancer survivors' abilities or appearances.
Families and their dogs come together for a few hours during the day and complete a walk to honor the caregiving qualities of their canine "best friends" and cancer survivors. Activities can include:
- Doggie games
- Top dog and dress up contests
- Team and community fundraising
- Music and food
- Special dog guest demonstrations by groups such as: therapy, police, or rescue dogs
At Bark For Life events, participants will have the opportunity to share their experiences, find new support systems, and make lots of new friends.
