It may have been Sawyer's first time, but her team, Team Wolf Pack, is well known. It's made up of mostly Hannaford employees who are very competitive when it comes to fundraising. In fact, they were the top fundraising team for the second year in a row, collecting $4,738 for this year's event.
"Fundraising happens when everyone donates a little," said Jane Sawyer, Team Wolf Pack member and six-year cancer survivor. "Everyone's life is affected by cancer and just about everyone has a dog. This has been great fun."
Thanks to Team Wolf Pack, Bangor Pet Resort, A Waggin' Walkers, Team Audrey and the numerous other teams, supporters and sponsors, the second annual Greater Bangor Bark For Life event raised over $20,000 for the American Cancer Society.
"Relay For Life is fun, but it's also a sad [American Cancer Society] event, where this is a nice alternative," explained Meagan. "It's upbeat; you get to see everyone's dog and dance."
Linda Boone, also a Team Wolf Pack member, took home the title of top individual fundraiser. For the second year in a row, she shaved her head to raise funds for the event, collecting a total $1,125.
"I didn't know if people would go for it again this year, but they did," said Boone.
