BANGOR - Dog owners and their canine companions are gearing up for the first Greater Bangor Bark for Life fundraiser that will take place near Main Street in June. The group of volunteers organizing the event has been meeting frequently to work out the details to ensure the occasion will be a successful one for the American Cancer Society.

"My goal is to have this event become something that the residents of the greater Bangor area look forward to every year. I want 'Bark for Life' to become something that Bangor is known for," said Elizabeth Tilton, Bark for Life volunteer.

Since the disease does not discriminate, dogs are just as capable as their owners of being diagnosed with cancer. The Greater Bangor Bark for Life volunteers hope to raise $10,000 this summer to support the American Cancer Society's ongoing effort to find a cure for this disease. And they've already gotten two corporate sponsors, Smith Concrete in Newburgh and The Furniture Gallery in Bangor.

"We're pleased with the response so far, especially with Bangor being the size that it is," said Lisa Eldridge, Bark for Life volunteer. "Bar Harbor was the first to do this event and they had just two weeks to put it together and raised over $1,500. That's pretty good."

The event will run from 4 to 7:30 p.m. on June 9. During that time, teams of people and their dogs will take turns walking one lap around the Hollywood Casino track, located inside Bass Park. Participants are encouraged to register and raise funds prior to the event but registering the day of the event is also possible.

"When you bring together people and their pets to fight cancer, it benefits everyone," said Eldridge.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the
    structure of your site? Its very well written;
    I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
