PRLog - Oct. 2, 2012 - BRYN MAWR, Pa. -- On November 11th people and pets in Haverford and the surrounding area will be fighting cancer by joining together for the Bark For Life of Haverford Township at the Haverford Reserves. The Bark for Life events are an outgrowth of the Relay for Life campaign where people raise money for the American Cancer Society. The Bark for Life events offer a fun way to celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones, and raise money to fight cancer. Some of the activities include dog contests, pet parade, raffles, and activities for children.
Bryn Mawr Veterinary Hospital has supported and participated in the American Cancer Society’s Bark for Life events for years. The Bryn Mawr Vet staff bring the dogs out for a fun filled day supporting a great cause. With the dog contests, demonstrations, and games these are always great events for people and their dogs. Remember that dogs and pets get cancer too! Bring out your canine to support cancer survivors and research.
The American Cancer Society was founded in 1913 and today is one of the largest charities in the nation. Through their Relay for Life events they help raise money for their efforts to fight cancer. They spend money on supporting cancer research, providing education to the public, patient services such as transportation to treatment, and advocating for the fight against cancer.
Pets provide important support to cancer patients and survivors. Man’s best friend can be the best companion during the difficult and trying times of a cancer patient. Dogs provide unconditional love and affection for survivors regardless of their abilities or appearance. The Bark for Life events offer an opportunity for people to share their experiences and work together to help end cancer.
