Pre-Veterinary Medical Association at Oregon State University

PVMA Dog 'n' Jog Fun Run

Event Run Down- Saturday, November 12th


PVMA's Dog n' Jog is an annual fundraiser that benefits the Pre-Veterinary Medical Association at Oregon State University. This year we are partnering with the Olive K Britt Hope Fund, an incredible fund that goes towards paying for life-saving treatments for shelter animals and pet owners that can't afford the treatments. Half of the event proceeds will be donated to this fund! To learn more about this fund click here: http://vetmed.oregonstate.edu/olive-k-britt-hope-fund. Dog n' Jog is a day of fun-filled activities for every member of the community, especially the furry ones!

We will have two races this year! The first is an official 5k race, and the second is a fun run. The official 5k race will begin at 8:00 am, and the fun run will begin at 9:00 am. Both are starting at the Memorial Union quad at OSU: 2501 SW Jefferson way.
