What is the American Cancer Society “Bark For Life” Mini Relay?
The American Cancer Society “Bark For Life” (BFL) Mini-Relay is an ACS Relay fund raising event that will honor the care giving qualities of our canine “Best Friends”.
The ACS Bark For Life honors the life-long contribution 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 and participants to celebrate cancer survivorship, to honor people lost to cancer, to fund raise in support of cancer research, education, awareness, patient services, advocacy, and to help eliminate the suffering that cancer causes worldwide.
Canine companions represent unconditional love, joy, security, compassion, and no judgments of human
abilities or appearances. The American Cancer Society Bark For Life is an irresistible way to “take a bite out of cancer”, smile, and make new friends – canine & human.
