Broadview University put itself on Ogden’s map during one busy weekend. Broadview-Layton campus’s veterinarian technology and massage therapy programs participated in different events in the same area to help multiple causes.
The massage therapy program teamed up with Get Out and Live for “Skirt In The Dirt“. Women from across the state got dirty and ran in a 5k and 10k off-road trail run at Fort Buenaventura in Ogden. Participants ran through water, sand and dirt while dodging trees and other obstacles.
Students and Massage Therapy Program Chair Kelley Sloan aided in the participants relief and helped other runners get ready for the day’s additional activities. A off-road duathlon and nighttime 10k were also on the docket for these weekend warriors.
Across the city, the university’s Vet Tech program was hosting their bi-annual Shots N’ Suds fundraiser at the South Ogden Animal Shelter. Students and staff offered discounted cat and dog core vaccines along with bathing, ear cleanings and nail trims. AVID Chip placements were also available.
The program raised over $600 for the Student Chapter of the National Association of Vet Tech in America (SCNAVTA). While the event only occurrs twice each year, past success may result in the addition of a third Shots N’ Suds in November. Watch BVU’s Facebook for more information.
