You may know that we at Neogen are in the food and animal safety business, but did you know we’re also now experts in organizing races? Well, maybe not experts, but we have two under our belt now.
This year saw the second annual Neogen 5K, a walk/run in Lansing, Michigan that raises money for Sparrow Health System’s Herbert-Herman Cancer Center. The center, which opened just last year, bears the name of Neogen founder and executive chairman James Herbert.
This year, over $20,000 was raised for the cancer center by race sponsors, participants and donors. A total of 231 participants — including two wearing full-body T-rex suits — walked and ran from Oak Park in front of Neogen’s headquarters in downtown Lansing, through the city’s Eastside neighborhood, and looped back up to the park.
