A dog-focused version of its signature Relay for Life fundraiser, the American Cancer Society’s Bark For Life is a non-competitive walk and fundraising event designed for dogs and their families to honor the caregiving qualities of our canine companions and aid in the fight against cancer.

“By supporting this event, participants and sponsors help the American Cancer Society save lives, and move closer to the ultimate goal of a world without cancer,” said Kate Gornik, Community Manager with the American Cancer Society.

Community members are encouraged to attend with their dogs and enjoy a non-competitive walk, vendors, demonstrations from police canine units, contests, music and food.

The Bark For Life of Hummelstown-Hershey Planning Committee is grateful for the support of event sponsors Penn State Health, Hershire Animal Hospital and ABC 27, along with dozens of local vendors including Spring Gate Vineyard, Honey and Penny’s Homemade Dog Treats and Signature HomeStyles.
