DAYS TO GO: 48
Tofurky Trots are family-friendly 5K walk/run events organized throughout the country to raise money and awareness for veg-friendly lifestyles, and to support both the health and vitality of local communities. The 2017 Los Angeles Tofurky Trot is sponsored by the Tofurky Company, and organized by the Factory Farming Awareness Coalition.
All proceeds from this fundraiser will be donated to benefit three nonprofit organizations working to end the exploitation of animals for food: Factory Farming Awareness Coalition, Vegan Outreach, and Kindred Spirit Care Farm.
Factory Farming Awareness Coalition (FFAC) is an educational non-profit committed to empowering people to save animals, the environment, and our own health through our daily food choices. FFAC provides holistic presentations on the benefits of veg eating to schools, community groups, and businesses across the United States.
Vegan Outreach promotes vegan living by distributing information at colleges, festivals, and other venues throughout the world and by providing support for interested people through their website.
Kindred Spirit Care Farm's mission is to promote compassion, cooperation, and connection to the earth, animals, and each other through sustainable care farming. Located at John Wooden High School, a continuation school for at-risk youth in a low-income area, Kindred Spirits offers students a unique opportunity to form meaningful connections with rescued animals and learn organic vegetable gardening.
