This past Saturday, the vet school held its annual See Spot Run
3k/5k! I was lucky enough to volunteer for the event, and I had a
lot of fun. As a little background, See Spot Run is an annual
run/walk put on by the SCAVMA (Student Chapter of the American
Veterinary Medical Association) chapter at Texas A&M. We had
close to 300 people sign up to participate this year, and proceeds
go to helping veterinary students pay for things like externships
(learning opportunities outside of Texas A&M). People sign up,
show up, and run or walk with their favorite four legged friend(s).
It's such a fun event, and it's one of those times when you get to
experience how much fun it is to be involved in the veterinary
community outside of school.
This year's event was no exception. We were a little worried
about rain, since we had thunder and lightning all night before the
event. But even though we had to change up the route a little (part
of it was flooded) everything worked out just great! We started
both races on time, and it was so fun to see everyone and
their dogs! We had big dogs, little dogs, and pretty much
everything in between. And because it was a vet school event, we
made sure to have lots of goodies for the dogs as well. We had a
little kiddie pool for them to cool off in, plenty of treats, and
dog bowls at all the water stations. And thanks to our awesome
sponsors, we had plenty of items to raffle off! Everyone went home
happy, and I'm already looking forward to next year's event!
