You’ve probably heard of the Ottawa Humane Society’s annual Wiggle Waggle Walkathon.
Well, this year, they decided to add a series of running races to the event. There’s a 5k, a 10k, a 3k Companion dog run and a 1k kids’ run.
And guess who’s going to be running the 5k? That’s right, the Veggie Runners: a motley crew of animal-loving, plant-powered athletes.
Consider this your personal invitation to join us. Just head on over to the registration page, sign up for the 5k, and say you want to be part of the Veggie Runners team.
And while it’s not mandatory, we encourage all of our team members to wear a pro-veg t-shirt, such as Neil’s new No Meat Athlete tee. Just our subtle way of reminding everyone that loving animals means loving all animals.
Running not your thing? No problem! Consider this your personal invitation to sponsor our team! Just click on the donation button on the NCVA home page, enter your donation, and indicate in the “add special instructions” box that it’s for the Run for the Animals. You can also donate through the Run for the Animals site. On the “Sponsor a Runner” page, you can enter my name (Erin O’Sullivan) or the runner of your choice on the Veggie Runners team.
