Walk Season is Coming! Soon the steamy summer air will turn crisp and cool and you know what that means: lots of marathons, 5k's and walks hitting city streets all over the nation. Why not join in the healthy, happy fun! Lace up your sneakers and get your blood flowing - all for a very good cause...
Farm Sanctuary Walk 2010. This year I'm super excited to be participating in Farm Sanctuary's 2010 Walk for Farm Animals. I'll be walking on October 24th 2010 in New York City.
Participate! There are Farm Sanctuary walks taking place all over the country! From Los Angeles to Portland - Washington DC to Tulsa. Join my team in NYC or find one in your own hometown. Not a walker? That's OK! You can still support the cause in a variety of ways. Visit my walk fundraising page here, or click ahead to learn 3 ways you can participate...
About the Walk - why it matters. Farm Sanctuary's annual Walk for Farm Animals raises awareness about the treatment of farm animals and raises vital funds to support Farm Sanctuary’s life-saving mission.
This year's Walk Spokesperson is Bob Harper, the personal trainer from NBC's The Biggest Loser.
By participating in or supporting a local Walk, you can make a real difference in the lives of farm animals by sending a powerful message of hope and creating a positive voice for change.
Three Ways to Participate:
1) Walk! Walk in NYC by "joining my team" - don't worry you can still walk at your own pace, on your own. You can also register to walk in another city.
2) Donate! Donate as much or as little as you can to sponsor me and my NYC team. (Even a $1 pledge makes a difference! - it all adds up) Sponsor my team here.
3) Spread the Word! You can help by re-tweeting this post on Twitter or posting it on Facebook - and other social networking outlets. You can even email it to friends/family who may be interested in participating. Send them to my event website: http://www.firstgiving.com/lunchboxbunch
I will be thanking each person who contributes in a special event wrap-up post on my blog. Please feel free to send in your "walk Photos" so that I can share them here.
Thank you in advance for your help.
As Farm Sanctuary says, a compassionate world begins with you.
