Participants in“Bark for Life” help the American Cancer Society save lives, helping them move closer to a world with less cancer and more birthdays.

“Beaufort is such a dog-friendly community,”said Charlie Holley, American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life Chair. “It’s time a Bark for Life was held here and we’ve no doubt that this community will step forward, support this event and make an impact for the society with their best friends at their sides.”
