Vetsnet and VetLed have announced that the first WellVet Weekend, an event designed to offer veterinary nurses and surgeons a chance to recharge, refresh and re-energise, will take place at Girton College, Cambridge, on 24th-26th August 2018.

The WellVet Weekend will include a variety of sporting activities, yoga classes, wellbeing workshops and social times, all finished off with a gala dinner. Something for everyone. 

Speaking at the gala dinner on the Saturday evening will be Rob Pope. Rob, also known as the 'real-life Forrest Gump' is an emergency vet by night and a marathon runner by day. He's the first person ever to run across the USA four times in one year and he's currently running across the USA for the fifth time. This will be Rob’s first public event following his completion of this epic journey. 

Liz Barton, Founder of Vetsnet said: "I love sport and I love this profession, so it's fantastic to be able to organise a weekend dedicated to the physical and mental wellbeing of vets and vet nurses. It promises to be a brilliant weekend, and I’m excited to have Rob Pope join us to share his stories from the road."

Ru Clements, Founding Partner of VetLed said: "We’re excited to create a community which supports veterinary professionals to thrive. The WellVet Weekend is a very special concept with a core mission that we wholeheartedly believe in. We hope we can make a long-lasting positive difference to those who attend the first WellVet Weekend."
