Who let the dogs out? Many people with a connection to the canines in their lives and to cancer heeded the call and attended Bark for Life at Coconut Point. March 9th was a beautiful day in sunny Florida and just right for joining in this fun offshoot of Relay for Life. Chris Jeffray, event lead, explained that Bark for Life celebrates the lives of people with cancer — including pets with cancer — and acknowledges the importance of the support dogs can provide to their humans. From the opening ceremony to the “Man vs Dog Food” challenge to the parade of adoptable dogs, this was a great way to bring awareness to the public regarding cancer and the companionship and bonds that form between people and canines.
