Bark For Life

A wiener-dog race was part of the fun during Saturday’s inaugural Bark for Life event.

Destin hosted its first Bark for Life event on Saturday at the Morgan Sports Center. Bark for Life is a community event affiliated with the American Cancer Society; created as a way for dogs and their owners to raise money for cancer research.

Much like Relay For Life, the event encouraged teams to walk a track and engage in other fundraising activities throughout the day such as raffles, dog races, and doggie fashion shows to name a few.

Event organizers told The Log that about 300 people turned out for the inaugural event.
