The dog jog also provides many volunteer opportunities, and the student organizers need all the help they can get!

The event is named in honor of Dr. Horace (Skip) Jackson, professor emeritus of veterinary physiology and biochemistry, and is one of the longest-running traditions of the Purdue Veterinary Conference.
