The Big Babies 5K run/walk has been established to provide financial support for medical expenses for the care of newborn large animals (foals, crias, calves, kids, etc.) that require treatment at MSU’s Veterinary Medical Center. Medical expenses for newborn animals are generally unanticipated and can be substantial. The Big Babies Fund will be used to cover part of the medical expenses for clients in need. Further, the fund can be used to enhance the educational experience of veterinary students and large animal residents (veterinarians pursuing further training to become specialists) working with Big Babies.
