March 25, 2010

Northwest VEG is hosting its 1st annual Race for the Animals event on July 10. This 5K and 10K trail run/walk will be held in Forest Park and begins at Lower Macleay Park. Runners, hikers, and walkers of all ages and paces are encouraged to participate. Following the race, all participants are invited to enjoy vegan goodies, energy bars and fruit to re-fuel those plant-strong bodies!

Race for the Animals is a fundraiser for Northwest VEG's education and outreach programs. Although not required, participants can go the extra mile and raise additional funds for this event. Prizes will be awarded to the entrants with the highest donation totals.

The registration fee is $20 (before July 7). Late registration (July 7-10) will be an extra $5. Northwest VEG members will receive a $5 discount on participation.

So lace up those athletic shoes and get ready to run or walk for the animals! For more information and to register visit
