AABP Stampede 5K sponsored by Triangle® attracts record participation, scholarship contributions
DULUTH, Georgia (September 25, 2017) — Miller’s Landing near Omaha, Nebraska, experienced a herd of running cattle veterinarians in the fifth annual AABP 5K Stampede. The race was sponsored by Triangle® killed viral vaccine from Boehringer Ingelheim, and held at the American Association of Bovine Practitioners (AABP) 50th Annual Conference on Sept. 16, 2017. The event raises funds to support the AABP Amstutz Scholarship for bovine veterinary students. In all, 132 bovine veterinarians and veterinary students from nearly all 50 states and six countries supported this year’s 3.1 miler.
The event raised over $7,000 for the program, which supports veterinary students pursuing food animal medicine and honors Dr. Harold E. Amstutz, a pioneer in fostering bovine veterinary organizations.
This year, eight students were awarded a $7,500 scholarship at the convention. “The AABP 5K Stampede, sponsored by TRIANGLE, continues to be an enjoyable and great way for us to help support the Amstutz fund,” said Dr. John Davidson, DVM, past president of AABP and senior associate director of beef cattle professional services at BI. “We’re looking forward to finding ways like this to support veterinary students throughout school and their career.”
Veterinarians and veterinary students from around the globe participated in the fifth annual AABP 5K Stampede in Omaha, Nebraska.
