LMU-CVM Student Groups to Host Wilderness Fun Run/Walk Relay to Benefit Memorial Scholarship in Honor of Kaitlyn DeVries

Harrogate, Tennessee, March 10, 2017—The Lincoln Memorial University-College of Veterinary Medicine (LMU-CVM) Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association (SCAVMA) and Christian Veterinary Fellowship will host a wilderness fun run relay at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 11, 2017. The 14-mile relay will begin on the LMU main campus in Harrogate, Tennessee, and end at the LMU-CVM DeBusk Veterinary Teaching Center (DVTC) in Ewing, Virginia.

Proceeds from the event benefit the Kaitlyn DeVries memorial scholarship fund. DeVries, a member of the LMU-CVM class of 2019, passed away tragically in an automobile accident in October of 2016. Students, faculty and administrators established the scholarship to keep DeVries’ memory alive and benefit another compassionate veterinary student.

Registration for the relay will take place in the lobby of the Hamilton Math and Science building from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. and the race will start outside of the building at 10 a.m. The relay will take place on the trail between the main campus and the town of Cumberland Gap and another trail that connects the Cumberland Gap to the DVTC. Runners and walkers are encouraged to participate as a team of six to complete the long course. Registration is $60 per team and a race t-shirt is available for $10. LMU-CVM students will host activities, food and awards for all participants at the end of the race.
