Event honors canine caregivers


Top, about 100 participants, counting both people and dogs, took part in the fourth annual Bark for Life event Sunday, May 1, in South Portland's Bug Light Park. The one-mile walk featuring dogs that work as caregivers to cancer patients raised more than $5,000 for the American Cancer Society. The event was a prelude to the American Cancer Society’s annual Relay for Life fundraiser, to be held Saturday, June 18 at South Portland High School.
