Cansa Bark For Life Hermanus will take place on Saturday 25 October at 09:00 on Curro School grounds. This would also be the kick-off for the Cansa Relay For Life Overstrand that will take place in March 2015.
The Cancer Association of South Africa Bark For Life is a fund-raising event honoring the life-long contributions of our canine caregivers. It presents an opportunity for people to be empowered through their canine companion partnerships and to contribute through the mission of the Cancer Association of South Africa. Canine caregivers are canine companions, guide dogs, service dogs, rescue dogs, therapy dogs, police dogs, cancer survivor dogs, and diagnostic dogs, who with their owners, are joining the Cancer Association of South Africa as Relay teams.
Canine companions demonstrate unconditional love, joy, security, compassion, and no judgments of cancer survivors’ abilities or appearances. The Cancer Association of South Africa Bark For Life is an irresistible way to partner with your canine best friend, smile, and make new friends – canine and human.
Entry fee: (one owner and one dog) is R50 (pre-purchase) or R65 on the day of the event. Goody bags for the first 75 registered canines. Some of the activities include SAPS K9 Dog unit show, informative talks on cancer and canine topics. Competition for best dressed pooch, Overstrand Calendar Dog, dog and owner look alike / cutest puppy.
