2013 Dr. Skip Jackson Dog Jog
The 2013 PVM Fall Conference will be held on Purdue's campus and as part of the excitement, the Dr. Skip Jackson Dog Jog, which combines the annual Road Race and the student-run Dog Jog, will once again take place for a great event that embraces the rich tradition and history of Purdue Veterinary Medicine.
See highlights of the 2012 Road Race
The 2013 Dr. Skip Jackson Dog Jog will begin at 8:00 A.M. from Lynn Hall Saturday, September 14, 2013, the conclusion of the Fall Conference week.
The annual race, sponsored by McAfee Animal Hospital, attracts faculty, staff, students, alumni and their dogs for the 5K run / walk. The event, which is named in honor of Dr. Horace (Skip) Jackson, professor emeritus of veterinary physiology and biochemistry, was first held in 1972 and is one of the longest-running traditions of the Purdue Veterinary Medicine Fall Conference.
All proceeds of the 2013 Skip Jackson Dog Jog will go to the PetSafe Program. The PetSafe program is a community service offered by Purdue University's College of Veterinary Medicine to meet the short-term housing needs of pets whose owners are temporarily unable to provide care (natural disasters, domestic violence, health issues, etc.).
