On April 16th at 9:00 AM, more than 300 runners will "take their marks" for the running of the 6th Annual SCAVMA Scamper. Scamper is a 10 kilometer road race, certified by The Athletic Congress (TAC), and a 5 kilometer fun run sponsored by the Iowa State University Student Chapter of the AVMA. With the firing of the gun, over 8 months or preparation will be concluded. Besides being a lot of fun and hard work, Scamper is a very important fund-raising event for ISU Veterinary students. Scamper money goes into the Symposium fund. This fund is used to defray student costs in attending the annual national SAVMA symposium held in various locations across the country. Symposium is an excellent educational opportunity. Many ISU students take advantage of this opportunity reflected by the fact that ISU's attendance has been the highest of any visiting university in the past two years.
