The American Cancer Society’s Bark for Life is a noncompetitive walk event for dogs and their owners to raise funds and awareness in the fight against cancer. It is a fun-filled event with demonstrations, contest, activities, and a signature relay-styled 5K walk for both canines and their owners. This fundraising event honors the care giving qualities of our canine “best friends” and honors their life-long contribution to helping people stay well and get well.

Bark for Life presents a unique opportunity for people to be empowered through their canine companion partnerships and to contribute to the fight against cancer. Canine caregivers are companions, service dogs, guide dogs, rescue dogs, therapy dogs, police dogs, diagnostic dogs, and cancer survivor dogs who represent unconditional love, joy, security, and compassion with no judgment of human ability, weakness, or appearance.

By supporting Bark for Life, you help the American Cancer Society save lives, and that helps us move closer to our ultimate goal of creating a world with less cancer and more birthdays.
