Dogs of all Types Are Invited to Bark Away Cancer
The American Cancer Society Bark For Life of West Morris will take place on May 5, 2012 as dogs and their owners walk to raise funds and awareness for the American Cancer Society’s fight against cancer. By supporting the noncompetitive walk event, participants and sponsors help the American Cancer Society save lives and move closer to the ultimate goal of a world with less cancer and more birthdays. The fun-filled day at Chubb Park in Chester Township will start with a walk, and then continue with games, contests and fun for the whole family. The event kicks off with a 10:30am registration and concludes at 1:30pm.
Registration can be done online at www.RelayForLife.org/BarkWestMorrisNJ or on the day of the event for $20 per dog. This includes a bandana for the dog, participation in the Walk & lots of fun activities for humans and pets. Water will be provided along the way. More activities will be available following the walk as well as contests such as pet/owner look-a-like, and best dressed dog. Canine etiquette the day of the Bark For Life includes: A maximum 6’ leash during the walk, current canine vaccinations, and use of canine trash bags for pick up. Sponsors of Bark For Life can set up a booth on site the day of the event and may distribute information, flyers, and products to the crowd.

The American Cancer Society combines an unyielding passion with nearly a century of experience to save lives and end suffering from cancer. As a global grassroots force of more than three million volunteers, we fight for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. We save lives by helping people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; helping people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery, fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight. As the nation’s largest non-governmental investor in cancer research, contributing more than $3.4 billion, we turn what we know about cancer into what we do. As a result, more than 11 million people in America who have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will be celebrating birthdays this year. To learn more about us or to get help, call us any time, day or night, at 1-800-227-2345 or visit cancer.org.
