From Chicago to Rhode Island to Baltimore to San Francisco, we're running for animals | Will you join us?

Together we're running 100+ miles in 4 cities in 5 weeks.

Why, you ask? We're dedicating these miles and the funds raised to help end the use of animals in experiments.Running four half-marathons in 5 weeks will not be easy, but knowing that the funds raised by our community will help end the suffering of animals will motivate us to complete this challenge! Our goal is to raise $1,000 by November 3rd, the day of the fourth and final half-marathon!  

The majority of us oppose animal experimentation, and we'd like to think that there are laws in place to protect animals and ensure humane treatment. But no animal test is prohibited by law. No matter how painful or pointless. "At least it's for a good reason," you say? Wrong. For years we've found drugs that work in animals but didn't in humans. We've cured diseases in animals, yet those cures didn't work in humans. We spend millions of taxpayer dollars every year to fund experiments on animals that fail to help humans 90% of the time. And 95% of new medications that are found to be effective in animals fail in human clinical trials. 

We want to share this message, and one of compassion and animal rights, with as many people as possible. As we run each race, city-to-city, we'll engage in conversations and help create more awareness. 

Also as vegan runners, we want to show our fellow athletes that a vegan diet means faster recovery time and better performance results. We were both meat-eaters once upon a day (gasp! we know), and individually we proved to our own bodies that we don't need long recovery time between races. No artery-clogging cholesterol for us. No dairy foods or meat to weigh us down or make us feel sluggish and bloated and cause cramping or upset stomach.
