WellVET Weekend

The inaugural WellVet weekend proved a huge success, bringing together sports, socials, relaxation and wellbeing workshops.

VetLed joined up with Vetsnet to realise a vision for a weekend of fitness, fun and re-fuelling mind, body and soul, and thus the WellVet Weekend was born.  This summer in the stunning setting of Girton College, Cambridge we hosted 70 vets and nurses for running, cycling, yoga, wellbeing workshops, a pub quiz and gala dinner.  AVS for grown ups!

SPVS and RCVS joined us to launch their practice Wellbeing Awards, and VetFit gave a great summary of their research into sport and wellbeing for veterinary students.

Shailen Jasani of The Ralph closed with an inspirational speech on achieving great dreams, free of stress!

Our gala dinner included a motivational speaker who is both a vet and unparalleled in his sporting achievement; to have run FURTHER than Forrest Gump!  Rob Pope completed the Forrest Gump run of over 15,000 miles across the USA.  He shared the highs and lows of his incredible endeavours.

With 78% of attendees rating the weekend as ‘Excellent’ and 93% saying they’d recommend it friends and colleagues, we’re already busy planning next years follow up event.  Watch this space…
