Tweet Share on Facebook

July 6, 2013

Northwest VEG would like to extend a huge thank you to all involved with this year's Race for the Animals. On June 30, more than 270 energetic participants and nearly 100 dedicated volunteers came together to support Northwest VEG's second largest fundraiser of the year! Even KGW Channel 8 was there! It turned out to be the perfect day to explore beautiful Mt. Tabor and enjoy a late morning picnic with new and old friends alike. Check out photos from this year's Race for the Animals on our Facebook Page. Do you have photos from the race? Please share them with us!
