How did Bark for Life White County get started?
JoAnn McKiernan and the Relay For Life of Pottstown, Pennsylvania, organized the first Bark for Life event in 2007 by combining a dog walk with a 5k and family walk as a fundraiser. The one-mile dog walk grew into three hours of music, food, vendors, demonstrations, contests games and doggie costume parties. Today, at nearly 400 Bark for Life events nationwide, both Relay and Bark teams educate and invite the community to support the American Cancer Society by celebrating canine caregivers.
White County Bark for Life was organized on April 10, 2010 by Cynthia Claybon in the parking lot of the Bridge Church. #barkforlife #barkforacure #barkforkifewc #caninecompanion #afdsmiles
