SCAVMA Run/Walk for Rabies 2008

SCAVMA would like to thank all of those who participated in the 5K Run for Rabies on November 15th sponsored by Purina and Merial. We raised just over $2000! Half of it will go to the Josh Project and half will go to the Alliance for World Rabies Control. We had 101 people register (51 from the vet school and 50 from main campus/community). This was a very successful race and we look forward to seeing you all next year for an even BIGGER race!

Thank You!
Liz Ezelle, Jessica Platz, Madison Hayward
