Greater Bangor Bark for Life is a noncompetitive mini Relay for Life walking event at Hollywood Casino Raceway in Bangor. It’s where teams of co-workers, families, community members, workout buddies and friends all gather with their canines to support those battling cancer, celebrate those who have beaten the odds, and honor those who have lost their fight.

The 6th annual Greater Bangor Bark for Life event will take place on Saturday, June 3 at Hollywood Casino Raceway in Bangor from 5:30-8 p.m. and includes various doggy contests and demonstrations. There will also be food available as well as pet-themed and community vendors on site. The night will end with a one lap walk of remembrance around the track in honor of those who've lost their battle with cancer. Participants are encouraged to bring their canine along but you do not have to have a dog to attend the event.

Registration is $10 for individuals, $15 for those attending the event with one dog and $25 for participants attending with two dogs. Registration is free to all cancer survivors. Each participant will receive a T-shirt for themselves and a bandana for their canine companion. Teams can consist of as few as two people or as many as 100.
