To raise awareness of mental health in the veterinary field, we encourage Boehringer Ingelheim employees to engage in physical activity. The goal is to accumulate miles doing any activity of choice. Some event options in which to participate include, Race Around the World and Out of the Darkness events (see below), or you can attend your own local event or participate with your own individual activity. Miles will be added together from the entire list of participants during the month of September to hit our goal of 24,902.1 miles to take our message around the world. This is a virtual event that can take place wherever you are. Participants will log their miles through this website.
Consider these in-person events to log your miles:
o Race Around the World: Race | Not One More Vet (nomv.org)
o Out of the Darkness events all over the country/ year-round (afsp.org):
