Second annual event benefits American Cancer Society

 

Families and their furry friends will 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 fundraising event honors the life-long contributions of our 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 www.tailsandtrailsacs.org.

“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.”

Come hang out with the American Cancer Society for a tail-wagging good time with your pup and other dogs at “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.
