Bark for Life to raise money for Relay

Dog lovers across the Hartselle area will get the chance on Saturday to help raise money for cancer research.

The Hartselle Area Relay For Life is sponsoring its inaugural Bark for Life at Sparkman Park’s Pavillion No. 4 from 9 to 11 a.m.

Trese McGhee, an event coordinator for Hartselle Area Relay for Life, said she hopes this event will grow into an annual event like Relay has become.

“This is an American Cancer Society event,” McGhee said. “The event is open dog owners and dog lovers alike. It just gives them a chance to participate in Relay for Life.”

McGhee said they will have numerous activities and contests for the canines during the two-hour event. Some of the events include a dog bone hunts, costume contests and the dog that looks most like its owner.

The games and contests are free but to have your picture made, the cost is $35, with $15 going to ACS. For this donation, you will receive a disc with five to ten pictures of you and your pet.

Bark For Life is a non-competitive walk event for goes 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 morning staring with a walk, and then continuing with contests, games and demonstrations.

Pre-registration is $10 per dog. Day-of registration is $20 per dog. Each dog receives a purple Bark For Life bandana

Dr. Michael Newman & Veterinary Regional Referral Hospital is sponsoring the event.
