The Run4Rabies running and walking event is organized by the foundation Dierenartsen zonder grenzen – student. This foundation is run by Veterinary Medicine students and is based at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Utrecht. We are engaged in supporting animal health and food safety projects in, among others, Tanzania and Malawi. In the Netherlands we mainly focus on fundraising and raising awareness for the importance of veterinary development work. For more information see: www.dierenartsenzondergrenzen.nl
In 2012 we organized the first Run4Rabies in honor of our 25th anniversary. Due to its success, the event is organized every year around World Rabies Day, 28 September. By means of registration fees and sponsors, we try to raise money for a project with the aim of fighting rabies. We would like to support a project in which dogs are vaccinated against rabies, but also make the population aware of the risks that rabies entails.
We hope to see you all during the Run4Rabies on Friday, September 25, 2020!
