BAKER —   Residents and their dogs can support cancer awareness next month at Bark for Life, an American Cancer Society fundraiser.

This will be the second year that Southside Animal Hospital has organized the Relay for Life event, which is 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 2 at the Baker Recreation Center.

Last year's event took place at Old Spanish Trail Park in Crestview. Event organizers decided to move the event to a slightly larger venue in hopes of expanding attendance.

"We did really good last year," Kim Hathcock, of Southside, said. "We had about 100 people attend.”

Still, “we are trying to get more communities involved in this event, including Baker and Holt,” she said.

In the new location, children can play in the facilities’ playground area.

They also can play in a bounce house and have their faces painted, among other kid-friendly activities.
