Families and their furry friends can celebrate the lifelong contributions of canine caregivers to cancer patients and remember their furry friends lost to cancer. Bark For Life is an opportunity for people to celebrate canine companionship and fight back against cancer with their dogs. The celebration will include doggie games, dress-up contests, music, food, and a walking track. Everyone who has been close to a cancer experience and has a dog in his or her life is invited!

This event is part of the American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Moravian College. Funds raised help the ACS save lives by funding groundbreaking research, supporting education efforts, and providing free information & critical services for cancer patients.

Last year, more than 20,000 registered canine and caregiver participants at 300 Bark For Life events across the country raised $1.2 million.

Colleges Against Cancer is excited to host our very first Bark For Life at Moravian and hope to see you all there Sunday, September 25 in the Dorm Circle from 10AM to 12PM!
