DENVER, COLORADO (April 8, 2015) – The American Cancer Society recently announced that Camp Bow Wow®, the Premier Doggy Day and Overnight Camp® franchise and an Inc. 5000 company, is supporting the Society’s fight against cancer by becoming the first national sponsor for the Society’s Bark For Life events.
“The American Cancer Society is pleased to welcome Camp Bow Wow as the first national Bark For Life sponsor,” said Sarah Robinson, Vice President, Great West Division Community Engagement, American Cancer Society. “As a premier pet services company in 37 states, their sponsorship offers a new level of support and capability to bring the community’s fight against cancer to a broader audience.”
Last year, more than 20,000 registered canine and caregiver participants at 300 Bark For Life events across the country raised $1.2 million. The fundraising events honor the lifelong contributions of canine caregivers to cancer survivors. The Bark For Life program is part of the American Cancer Society Relay For Life movement. Funds raised help the Society save lives by funding groundbreaking research, supporting education efforts, and providing free information and critical services for cancer patients.
“We are proud to sponsor the American Cancer Society’s Bark For Life events and excited to bring the fight against cancer to the Camp Bow Wow family and our valued customers,” said Julie Turner, Vice President of Marketing, Camp Bow Wow.
