Northwest VEG would like to extend a huge thank you to all involved with this year's 5th annual Race for the Animals. On June 28th, 286 energetic participants and nearly 100 dedicated volunteers came together to support Northwest VEG and Green Acres Farm Sanctuary! 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 official results from Eclectic Edge Racing and photos from this year's Race for the Animals on our Facebook Page. Do you have photos from the race? Please send them to Chelsea Davis at
