Bark For Life Recap

For those of you who don’t know, I participated as a photographer and walker in the Greater Bangor Bark For Life. Like Relay For Life, this event raises money for Relay, but acknowledges the vital role dogs play in the caregiving of people with cancer.

Also, dogs get cancer. Yep. They do.

My team: the Greyhound Gang! Pictured are Bill Bell (my husband), our greyhound Laura, me!, Laurie Qualey with chihuahuas Penelope & Gaius, Baron the greyhound, and Matt Qualey. Thanks to Don Hanson for taking this photo!

 

This event was organized by some very pawsome people: Lisa Eldridge, Shannon Small, Elizabeth Tilton, and Jodi Veneziano plus countless volunteers and vendors.

Here are the results, courtesy of the Bark committee:

  • 15 Survivors
