Bark For Life of Central NJ is the American Cancer Society's unique "canine companion event" to raise funds and awareness in the fight against cancer. While there are many Relay For Life events happening throughout the state, there are only TWO Bark For Life events taking place in New Jersey. In some ways, Bark For Life is way more fun and exciting than our Relay For Life events because this community event welcomes and features DOGS - where Relay For Life does not.
What makes this event special is that not only do we celebrate cancer survivors and remember those lost -- we also honor our canine caregivers: service dogs, emotional support dogs, and especially our family pets who unconditionally give comfort and support to cancer patients and their families when they need it most.
Here are the basics:
