On Saturday, June 8 at the Tower Park, 920 Heritage Way, Brentwood, the American Cancer Society will hold an event called Tail and Trails for the Cure. Families and their furry friends will celebrate the lifelong contributions of canine caregivers to those affected by cancer. The event will run from 10 a to noon.

This will be the second-annual fundraising event that honors the life-long contributions of our canine caregivers. Register for the event at www.tailsandtrailsacs.org.

Tails and Trails is a family-friendly event for dog lovers at heart. Participants can strut their pup on the park’s 1.4-mile trail or try “Doga” (dog-yoga) with their pet. Be sure to sign up your canine for fun and furry contests for largest and smallest dogs, best trick, best howl and best dressed.

“Tails and Trails is an opportunity for people to celebrate canine companionship and fight back against cancer with their dogs,” said Dawn Gardin, community manager for the ACS in Williamson County. “Every person who has been close to a cancer experience and has a dog in their life is invited.”

Come hang out with the American Cancer Society for a tail-wagging good time with your pup and other dogs at Tower Park’s Barkwood Dog Park and enjoy a pup-cup. Funds raised at Tails for Trails help the American Cancer Society save lives by funding groundbreaking research, supporting education efforts, and providing free information and critical services for cancer patients.
