Thank You Volunteers!

This weekend, members of the community braved the chilly morning for the annual Boneyard Creek Community Day! It was a rewarding morning spent collecting waste from various parts of Urbana-Champaign, making our public spaces a better place for both humans and wildlife to spend their time. A special thank you to the Vet Med students who took the time even though midterms are just around the corner! We’re already looking forward to next year.

Road Race for Animals!

Omega Tau Sigma, the professional veterinary student fraternity, is proud to host the 24th annual 5K Road Race for Animals. The run/walk serves to promote the health of our community and to celebrate the human-animal bond. Proceeds benefit the Wildlife Medical Clinic, a non-profit veterinary student run clinic that accepts ill, injured, or orphaned wildlife. This year, we are also benefiting the Midwest Animal Rescue Service of Illinois, a no-kill shelter that rescues animals from hazardous situations including neglect, puppy mills, and natural disasters. Currently MARS is helping animals affected by hurricane Harvey.
This charity race is open to the public and welcomes runners and their canine exercise companions. Register here!
