Bark for Life honors canine caretakers


The 8th Annual American Cancer Society’s Fayette County Bark For Life event is Sunday, April 30 from 1 – 4 p.m. (registration at 1 p.m, event starts at 2 p.m.) at Shakerag Knoll in Peachtree City.
This family oriented event features good food, music, and demonstration from the Fayette County K-9 Unit, games, contests, door prizes, and lots of fun activities for dogs and humans.

“The day of the event is more of a celebration” said chairperson, Janet Reed. “The fundraising begins first of the year through our website. People can form a team and ask family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, everyone to either join their team or make a contribution of as little as $5 to a team online. There is a $25 registration for one dog and $10 per additional dog in the same family; we also have corporate sponsorships”.
All teams and sponsors are invited to participate at the event. People that register their dog for $25 receive a T-shirt, a bandana for each dog and a “swag bag” full of great doggie items and coupons.
Bark For Life is an official Relay For Life event that honors the lifelong contributions of our canine companions and how their unconditional love and support can be so important in our lives, especially when facing a devastating disease like cancer. Every dog lover and person who has been close to a cancer experience in their life is invited to participate. All proceeds go directly to the annual Fayette County Relay For Life goal and, your Relay For Life team will receive credit for all funds raised during Bark For Life!
