BANGOR - The Greater Bangor Bark For Life event is next month and organizers are hoping for a big turnout. This one lap walk around the Hollywood Casino Raceway is an American Cancer Society Relay For Life fundraiser and the only one of its kinds that includes bringing your four-legged family members along for the experience. 

"Right now we have 13 teams all from the local area. Our goal is to have 20 teams for the event," said Shannon Small, Greater Bangor Bark For Life teams chair. "All our teams are working really hard to raise money. Team Wolf Pack came up with window decals, and Team Bangor Pet Resort and Spa had a team member make purple Paracord rope ribbon key chains to sell to raise money."

BANGOR - The Greater Bangor Bark For Life committee is once again encouraging all canines and their caregivers to gather at the Hollywood Casino Raceway in Bangor this summer to help the American Cancer Society take a bite out of cancer. At this Relay For Life event, dog lovers form teams, collect donations and meet to walk one lap around the track with their four-legged friends by their side.

"Bark For Life allows dog lovers to come together to help find a cure for cancer which affects not only people, but pets too," explained Elizabeth Tilton, Bark For Life committee member. "With the smaller time commitment [than a typical Relay For Life all-nighter] and the other dog lovers you meet, this is unlike any other cancer-fighting event you will see."
