4. Pack Your Running Shoes for Sunday’s 5k and Homecoming Attire for the Wednesday Night Party

Join NAVC and IDEXX this year outside the Orange County Convention Center South Concourse in the Watson Lot (between the Hyatt Hotel and the OCCC South Concourse) to run with your pet and support the WSAVA Foundation! Each registrant will receive a Fun(d) Run Bag and T Shirt, which we encourage you to wear on race day.

For those of you who want to join the fun and don’t have a pet or are unable to bring your pet, you can share the love and run with a rescued shelter dog from Pet Rescue by Judy and who knows… you might spark a connection and choose to make them yours furrever!

Sign Up for the 5k

Also, while you’re packing, throw in your homecoming sports jersey, dress attire, crown and sash or team colors for Wednesday’s Homecoming party on VMX’s closing night.
