Rockford dogs, community to fight cancer during Bark for Life event

Celebrate, remember, bite back! 

Rockford is ready to celebrate, remember and bite back against cancer. The Faithful Friends Relay for Life team is hosting the inaugural Bark for Life event on September 17 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event will begin at 235 N. Main Street, near Rockford Footwear Depot—look for the Wolverine World Wide Hush Puppy—and will follow the White Pine Trail south to Richardson-Sowerby Park.

Bark for Life is an American Cancer Society Relay for Life fundraising event that honors the caregiving qualities of canine companions. Bark for Life fundraisers also help save lives by supporting the mission of the American Cancer Society.

During this fur-friendly event, participants will walk their four-legged companions along the White Pine Trail to Richardson-Sowerby Park. At the park, they will have the opportunity to take part in activities such as dog massages, pedi-for-a-cure, contests, and games owners can play with their dogs. There will be opportunities to win prizes and purchase doggy bags of treats to enjoy once they get home.

Sponsorship opportunities still remain and begin at $­100. Packages include items such as signage on the White Pine Trail, logo on all day-of-event literature, complimentary registration fee, and/or ability to judge a contest. Contact event organizers for more information. Additionally, individual donations can be made to this local Relay for Life event. Participants can learn more by visiting www.relayforlife.org/rockfordmi and clicking on the Bark for Life tab or by searching “Bark for Life Rockford, MI” on Facebook.
