We are just a few weeks away from the Race for the Animals and we hope you are getting as excited as we are! Join us on Saturday, June 28 for our 5th annual 5K/10K trail fun run/walk on Mt Tabor, an extinct volcano in the middle of beautiful Portland. People of all ages and abilities are welcomed. Together, let's raise some funds for Northwest VEG and Green Acres Farm Sanctuary, enjoy beautiful scenery and friends all the while making a difference for the animals, the planet and your health! Small prizes will be given to the participant with the best costume and the first female and male finishers in each age group (18 and under, 19-35, 36-50, 51 and over)! Stay after the race for a FREE 10 minute massage and indulge in a delicious picnic featuring treats from Sweetpea, Lilly's Hummus, Cool Cups, gardenbar, Thunderbird, Nakd, Absolutely Juicy, Grizzlies Granola, Follow Your Heart, Lundberg and much more!
