Bark For Life raises $2,500


Growling, rolling over, doing stupid human tricks, and chasing tails for prizes.

Last Saturday, 35 dogs and 50 people attended an American Cancer Society fundraiser that included an opening ceremony, a circuitous walk around Ojibway Park, vendor booths, playing on the playground and in the grass, beautiful weather, a silent auction and prizes.

Local Relay For Life organizers hold the annual Bark For Life as a way to recognize dogs for their caregiving qualities.

The event, which raised $2,500 this year, is a precursor to the annual Relay For Life, which seeks a cure for cancer.

Bark For Life's motto is "A Cure—it's PAWSible."

Relay For Life South Washington County is scheduled to take place starting at 6 p.m. Friday, June 10, at East Ridge High School. The event runs until 6 a.m. Saturday, June 11.
