Since 1986, Farm Sanctuary’s Walk for Farm Animals events have brought thousands of people together to celebrate the difference we can make when we put compassion first. Through this beloved tradition, Farm Sanctuary members and supporters have helped us spread the word that every farm animal is someone, not something – and that we can take positive steps to help these individuals when we align our actions with our values and make choices we can feel good about. After much anticipation, we are excited to announce our new event, coming to a city near you!
A Nationwide Movement
Farm Sanctuary is excited to introduce a new opportunity to go the distance for farm animals with our Plant Powered Run! This endeavor will expand upon our previous Walk events by introducing a new run component – a great way to outrun cruelty with compassion and inspire change in the way society views and treats farm animals everywhere. Most people adopt a plant-based lifestyle for one of three reasons: for the animals, for our personal health, or for the environment. Similarly, there are three ways to participate in these nation-wide events: a 10K Timed Run, a Fun Run, and of course, a non-competitive Walk component just like our previous Walk for Farm Animals events. This is a great way to take action in whichever capacity is right for you – there is a place for everyone, no matter where you are on your personal journey, to join us as we work to create a more compassionate world for all.
The Plant Powered Run will offer a timed 10K at our flagship events in New York City, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, as well as a Fun Run and Walk at all Plant-Powered Run events. Now, you can go the distance as you help us raise funds and change hearts for farm animals!
We are excited to partner with Green Festival, America’s largest and longest-running sustainability and green-living event! Green Festival promotes a plant-based diet focused on organic, non-GMO and local artisanal foods as part of a healthy and sustainable lifestyle while providing a platform for animal rights, environmental awareness and social justice – accessible for everyone. Each Green Festival provides a platform with thousands of brands and products to shop, taste and enjoy a compassionate way of life with everything you need in your everyday life to live, work and play green.
Plant Powered Run participants in New York City can continue the compassionate celebration all weekend long at Green Festival! Learn More
