THE STORY:

Animals touch our lives in incalculable ways. Many of us have experienced the unquestionable love of our dog or cat.  Farm animals -- pigs, cows, sheep, goats, chickens, and others -- are all around us, but unfortunately remain largely unacknowledged for their ability to think, feel, and experience  companionship. Help me to bring awareness and change to the current plight of farmed animals.  Please make a donation and/or join me in Farm Sanctuary's Chicago Walk for Farm Animals and Fun Run on October 1st, 2016.

With Gratitude,

April

Take a step closer to a more compassionate world at the 2016 Chicago Walk for Farm Animals and Fun Run!

Join the movement on October 1, 2016 at Grove 13 near Belmont Harbor to raise funds and awareness for farm animals. Come with friends, family, and neighbors for a two-mile walk or run along Chicago’s lakefront. Registration will begin at 7:45 a.m.  The Opening Ceremony with Farm Sanctuary President and Co-founder Gene Baur and Honorary Chair Jane Velez-Mitchell, Editor of JaneUnChained.com & Facebook's #LunchbreakLIVE will begin at 8:45 a.m. followed by the Walk and Fun Run

The Walk For Farm Animals

The Walk for Farm Animals has been part of Farm Sanctuary since the beginning. In 1986, we didn’t yet have our sanctuary in Watkins Glen, but we had a small group of dedicated volunteers who helped us establish the first Walk for Farm Animals in support of our mission to stop animal abuse and suffering. Those first efforts were modest by today’s standards, but they helped fund the down payment for what became our first official shelter and national headquarters.
 

From those humble beginnings, the Walks have continued to be a vital part of our fundraising and outreach efforts and keep growing as more people learn about farm animal issues and want to help. The funds raised by the Walks support our work to rescue farm animals, provide urgent care and lifelong refuge, as well as our education and advocacy efforts for farm animals everywhere. Over the years, the Walks have raised nearly $2 million for Farm Sanctuary thanks to the dedication of our volunteer Walk Coordinators and our amazing walkers! You can join the movement and start making a difference today by registering for the 2016 Chicago Walk for Farm Animals and Fun Run
