DALLAS TWP. – The Misericordia University Colleges Against Cancer Chapter will hold “Bark for Life” from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27 in the Wells Fargo Amphitheater on the upper campus. The noncompetitive walk event for dogs and their owners raises money and awareness for the American Cancer Society’s fight against cancer.

The fun-filled day starts with the walk, and continues with canine demonstrations, games, treats, toys, and food. Registration is $15. To register, go to www.Relayforlife.org/barkmisericordiaPA.

The Colleges Against Cancer Chapter will also host a “Turkey Trot” 5K walk/run at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 17. Registration will be in the Anderson Sports and Health Center, and the walk/run will follow a course around campus. Preregistration is $15 in advance and includes a shirt. Registration is $20 the day of the event. Registration is available by contacting chapter advisor Elizabeth Pedro at [email protected] or by calling 570-674-8055.

All proceeds from the “Bark for Life” and “Turkey Trot” events count toward the university’s Relay for Life that is scheduled for 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. April 12-13.
