PDX Tofurky Trot 2017

Tweet Share on Facebook

November 23, 2017

Join us on Thanksgiving morning!

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. The money raised from the Trot goes to support Northwest VEG, Wildwood Farm Sanctuary, Out to Pasture Sanctuary, Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary, Sanctuary One, and Green Acres Farm Sanctuary.

Interested in volunteering? Sign up HERE!

The Trot has tasty prizes for the top fundraisers and the top Trotters, and all registered Trotters get a free bag!

Friendly dogs are welcome!

    December 7 (6:30 - 8:30 PM)

    Robin Birdsong is the Founder & President of Enchanted Farm Sanctuary. She's also a passionate animal activist, vegan lifestyle advocate, herbalist and organic veggie farmer. Her farm is currently home to nearly 150 animals she has rescued from slaughter, neglect & abuse. EFS was founded in honor of her son Danny, after his tragic death in 2007. Her mission is to share her transformation from tragedy to triumph and to open hearts to the plight of our animal kin. In her speeches, Robin tells the story of how a bereaved mother cow saved her life and why she is so determined to return the favor by saving as many animal lives as possible. She also explains how compassion & love can heal even the deepest grief and depression. Her talks have been described as a rollercoaster of emotion full of both wit and grit where you'll often find yourself laughing through the tears.

    6:30pm at Unitarian Universalist Church of Vancouver, 4505 East 18th St., Vancouver, WA 98661.
