EVENT DATE: Nov 24, 2016
We are trotting to support Northwest VEG, Wildwood Farm Sanctuary, Out to Pasture Sanctuary, Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary, Sanctuary One, and Green Acres Farm Sanctuary.
According to Fortune, Americans will spend $201 million on whole turkeys in the week leading up to Thanksgiving. You have the opportunity to have fun and raise funds to support rescued turkeys and other rescued farm animals living their lives out in local sanctuaries, as well as the effort to spread a compassionate message. The Tofurky Trot is 5k (3.1 miles) and is a run, trot, or walk open to all levels of physical fitness. It’s a great day to enjoy the company of fellow plant eaters and highlight the benefits of plant-based diets on this largely carnivorous holiday.
