Welcome to the Dr. Skip Jackson Dog Jog 5K Fun Run / Walk

The student-run Dr. Skip Jackson Dog Jog is a 5K run / walk that attracts faculty, staff, students, alumni, the local community, and their dogs. Check-in will begin at 7:00 a.m. with the race starting at 8:00 a.m. from Lynn Hall and routing through campus on Saturday, September 21. Proceeds will go to the PetSafe Program and Priority 4 Paws (P4P).
