AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY
Families and their furry friends are invited to celebrate the lifelong contributions of canine caregivers to those affected by cancer at the American Cancer Society Tails and Trails for the Cure, 10 a.m. to noon, June 8 at Tower Park in Brentwood.
The second-annual fundraising event honors the life-long contributions of canine caregivers. Dogs demonstrate unconditional love, joy, and compassion without judgement of a cancer patient’s abilities or appearance. Register today for the event at.
Tails and Trails is a family-friendly event for dog lovers at heart. Participants can strut their pup on the park’s 1.4-mile trail or try “Doga” (dog-yoga) with their pet. Participants may sign up their canine for fun and furry contests for largest and smallest dogs, best trick, best howl and best dressed.
“Tails and Trails is an opportunity for people to celebrate canine companionship and fight back against cancer with their dogs,” said Dawn Gardin, community manager for the ACS in Williamson County. “Every person who has been close to a cancer experience and has a dog in their life is invited.”
The American Cancer Society is promising a tail-wagging good time with your pup and other dogs at Tower Park’s Barkwood Dog Park and enjoy a pup-cup. Funds raised at Tails for Trails help the American Cancer Society save lives by funding groundbreaking research, supporting education efforts, and providing free information and critical services for cancer patients.
