East Boston Bark for Life Event
set for April 28
Bark for Life
The American Cancer Society's Bark For Life is a fundraising event
honoring the life-long contributions of our Canine Caregivers. It
presents an opportunity for people to be empowered through their
canine companion partnerships and to contribute to cancer cures
through the mission of the American Cancer Society.
Canine Caregivers are Canine Companions, Guide Dogs, Service Dogs,
Rescue Dogs, Therapy Dogs, Police Dogs, Cancer Survivor Dogs, and
Diagnostic Dogs, who with their owners, are joining the American
Cancer Society as Relay teams. They participate to celebrate cancer
survivorship, to honor people lost to cancer, and to fundraise in
support of the American Cancer Society mission of eliminating cancer
though research, education, advocacy and service.
Canine companions demonstrate unconditional love, joy, security,
compassion, and no judgments of cancer survivors abilities or
appearances. The American Cancer Society Bark For Life is an
irresistible way to partner with your canine best friend, smile, and
make new friends – canine & human.
At the event families and their dogs come together for a few hours
during the day and complete a one mile walk to honor the care giving
qualities of their canine “Best Friends” and cancer survivors.
There are so many ways East Boston dog owners and buisness owners
can be apart of this!!
