“We are so excited to have this event back for its second year, “Bark For Life” chair Dian Goss said. “This is an opportunity for people to bring their dogs for a fun walk and help raise money for cancer research at the same time. We have added many activities this year for the dogs as well as the whole family.”

Canine competitions include a Peanut Butter Eating Contest, Find The Bone, Dogs Who Looks Most Like Their Humans, Best Kisser, and Loudest Bark. There will be demonstrations such as the Police K9 Unit, pets for adoption from area rescue groups, and pet related businesses.

Teams competing in the American Cancer Society Relay For Life in June will have food and craft items for sale. Local artist, Sean Wallace, has donated an original work from his unique repurposed barbed wire in the shape of a dog bone. Raffle tickets will be sold and the winner will be drawn at the conclusion. Proceeds from all activities that day will go toward ACS cancer research and programs.

Bark For Life 2014 is set to begin with a Christian County Chamber of Commerce Ribbon Cutting. Chamber President Marion Mason will officiate along with community and business mascots.

Entertainment will be provided again this year by Eddy Craft and Friends.

A registration fee of $10 includes a Bark For Life bandana for your dog along with an entry for prizes. Winners will be announced throughout the event and you must be present to win.

Register your dog at RelayForLife.org/Barkchristianky.
