More event details.

Thanks to everyone who came out to help make our event a big success!  It was a gorgeous day and we loved seeing all the dogs (and people) having such a great time!
We are still tieing up loose ends, but at this point it looks like our event has raised $13,253 to fight cancer!  That's a pretty good amount for a morning at the park!  Good job, Santa Clarita Valley! 

If you had your dog's picture taken with our event photographer, you can see them here.

The American Cancer Society Bark For LifeTM is a noncompetitive walk event for dogs and their owners to raise funds and awareness for the American Cancer Society's fight against cancer.

By supporting Bark For Life, you help the American Cancer Society save lives, and that helps us move closer to our ultimate goal of a world with less cancer and more birthdays.

So bring your best canine friend and join us for a fun-filled day starting with a walk, and then continuing with demonstrations, contests, and games.
