MSUCOM SOMA (Student Osteopathic Medical Association) is hosting its annual D.O. Monster Dash 5K fundraiser to support the St. Baldrick's Foundation and The Village Lansing! The St. Baldrick's Foundation is a wonderful organization that works with pediatric oncologists to fund the most promising research to combat childhood cancer and support survivors. The Village Lansing is a local organization that strives to create a community where the youth of Lansing can pursue their dreams without fear of gun violence and have access to the support and resources they need to thrive.

The in-person race will start at 10:00 AM on November 5th on campus at MSU. Check-in begins at 9:00 AM in Wells Hall. Feel free to wear your spookiest costume and stick around after the race to enjoy our closing ceremony for snacks, raffle drawings, and a word from the St. Baldrick's Foundation!
