The 11th annual Fast and the Furriest 5K Run/Walk, organized by our vet students, held on Saturday, April 26, 2014, was a barking success! More than 400 participants joined and the event raised over $10,000. Proceeds support student scholarships and the Companion Care Fund, helping low-income clients pay for hospital expenses.
The Fast and the Furriest 5K is a family-friendly event for individuals and their furry friends of all ages and abilities. The race will feature chip timing on a certified course, doggie demos, awards, and giveaways. There will also be a 1K fun-run for children featuring music, face painting, and more! All participants will receive a T-shirt and are entered to win several great race-day giveaways! There will be awards for the top three male and female finishers overall, the top male and female with pet, and fun pet awards!
The event is organized by students in the Professional Veterinary Medicine (PVM) program in the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at CSU. Proceeds for the Fast and the Furriest 5K benefit animals in need of emergency or life-saving treatments through the Companion Care Fund at CSU's Veterinary Teaching Hospital. This fund helps community members with financial need pay for procedures performed at the VTH that they would otherwise not be able to afford. A smaller portion of the proceeds will also help your local community by providing for scholarships through the PVM Class of 2015 and 2017 Scholarship Fund.
2015 race date to be announced.
