Bring your dog out this weekend and help support the Bark For Life from 9AM - Noon at KevAnna's on Route 28 in Forestport. 

Dogs are the unnoticed caregivers who give a special kind of support for cancer patients. The American Cancer Society’s Bark For Life of the North Country is a walk for dogs and their owners to ‘bark’ back against cancer. Bark For Life is a way to pay tribute to our favorite canines and raise funds and awareness to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.

Bark For Life is a quarter-mile and one-mile noncompetitive walk on a preplanned route. Registration begins at 9 AM and the walk begins at 10 AM. Dogs and their owners can enjoy games, demonstrations and contests throughout the event.

“Bark For Life is a great opportunity to involve those four legged family members in the fight against cancer,” said Donna Mucks, Volunteer Chair for the Bark For Life of the North Country. “It gives us the chance to honor survivors, remember those lost and those who are still fighting, whether they are friends, family, or pets.”

Bring your favorite pooch and join the American Cancer Society for a day of tail wagging, dog treats and tricks as we help people get well, stay well, fight back and find cures.
