The Bob Duncan Memorial 5K Run/Walk is scheduled for April 27, 9 am at the Virginia Tech cross country trail behind the vet school. The registration form is attached and may be found at http://www.vetmed.vt.edu/development/duncan5k.asp.
Many of you will have known Bob and recognize the legacy of his life: a life of generosity, service, and leadership. He made a difference in many lives, through his professional and personal life. Some of you may not have met him but have become acquainted with our daughter, Taylor, or with me (Dr. Susan Duncan, FST). We hope that we are living his legacy.The Bob Duncan Memorial 5K continues his legacy. It is an opportunity for anyone to get out and walk or run the distance. This event is not about the competition, although there are some FAST competitors, but more about the opportunity to share in the fellowship of friendship. If you walk, you can participate in this event! If you talk, you can cheer for those who walk/run and talk with those who come together to remember Bob, renew old friendships and begin new ones. The race proceeds and contributions support scholarships and professional meeting travel for veterinary students who are pursuing an interest in veterinary pathology. Bob was an exceptional student mentor and advocate for student professional development in pathology. This event supports the continuation of his professional and personal legacy.
