Bark For Life is an American Cancer Society fundraising event that brings people together to join in the fight against cancer with their canine companions.
Bark For Life is a community-based event, where teams of family, friends, and co-workers walk together to Celebrate cancer survivors, Remember loved ones lost, and Fight Back against the disease. We also celebrate and honor our canine companions for their caregiving qualities.
The event is being held on Sunday, April 21, 2013 from 9am-12pm at Lyndhurst in Tarrytown.
This will be the second year Bark For Life is being held in Westchester. Last year Bark For Life raised almost $30,000 for the fight against cancer and brought together over 150 people and about 100 dogs. All are welcome to attend.
