WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine's third 5K Dog Jog is Sept. 24.
The race, in which runners and dogs can participate, is organized by students in the School of Veterinary Medicine. It will begin at 8 a.m. at the school's "Continuum" statue at Lynn Hall on Harrison Street. The course is on the Purdue campus.
"The goal of the event is to raise awareness about how physical exercise benefits people and their pets," said Carrie Nedele, a third-year veterinary student who helped organize the race.
