University of Southern Indiana

Race Information

Doggie Dash

This event allows whole families (including the four-legged children) an opportunity to walk and run on the beautiful University of Southern Indiana campus. The Doggy Dash 3K and 5K course supports the health and wellbeing of the Evansville community and provides hands-on experience for USI students. Through the Doggie Day Walk or Run, USI will partner with local organizations and businesses to develop partnerships that will potentially boost community participation on the USI campus.

A portion of the proceeds from the Doggie Dash will be used to offer programming and provide professional development opportunities for student clubs within USI’s Pott College. Another portion of the proceeds will be given to It Takes A Village Pet Rescue.
