‘Biggest ever’ for Bark for Life

Sarah Wibell Community

Pups and people alike enjoyed their Saturday at the 6th Annual Bark for Life. Supporting both Relay for Life and the Morgan County Humane Society, family fun was available for all.

“This was the biggest year ever,” Bark for Life organizer and cancer survivor Beth Bradley said. “We had 49 registered dogs and many more who stopped by to enjoy the event!”

Multiple dogs were registered for the event and wore the bandanas received in their goody bags as they took the opening lap of the field at Bill Wood Park.

Bradley explained, “Relay for Life events have a lap that is done to honor those who have battled and are battling cancer. We will do that here to honor both people and dogs who have survived cancer, too.”

Georgia Search and Rescue K-9 Unit showcased what their four-legged partners are trained to do with the assistance of several people from the crowd. Doc 103.9 FM radio served as the emcee and D.J. for the event while kids enjoyed face painting, balloon animals, and a bounce house.
