The Walks are an important part of Farm Sanctuary’s history and our outreach and fundraising efforts. They are also a great way for supporters to help send a positive message of compassion and hope for farm animals.
Each year, the Walks are more successful, attracting more participants and raising more money to help abused animals. They are positive events that bring together people who care about what factory farming is doing to animals, people and the environment.
This year we are happy to welcome our first-ever Walk spokesperson, celebrity trainer Bob Harper, from the TV show The Biggest Loser. Bob is just as passionate about farm animal protection as he is about health and fitness, so we’re thrilled he’s joined us to speak out for animals.
Walks occur across the U.S. and in Canada in September and October. They are organized and run by volunteers, and it is their incredible commitment and talent that makes these events so successful. All of your generous contributions go straight to Farm Sanctuary.
If you are interested in participating in a Farm Sanctuary Walk for Farm Animals, please check out the Find a 2010 Walk page to see if there is an event in your community. You can register either online, or through the mail

Please also consider making a donation to help us meet our fundraising goal for this year’s Walk. More than ever, farm animals need your help. Thank you!
