The American Cancer Society Bark For Life is an event for dogs and their owners to raise funds and awareness for the American Cancer Society's fight against cancer. By supporting Bark For Life, you help the American Cancer Society save lives, and that helps us move closer to our ultimate goal of a world with less cancer and more birthdays. So bring your best canine friend and join us for a fun-filled day with demonstrations, contests, and games.
Bark For Life mobilizes communities throughout the country to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and provide participants, along with their pets, with an opportunity to fight back against the disease. Bark For Life brings together friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools, faith-based groups . . . people from all walks of life - all aimed at furthering the American Cancer Society's vision of creating a world with less cancer and more birthdays.
