Team Vegan Philly

 A great program those of you on the East coast might want to know about:

 Team Vegan Philly

The group will be raising money for outreach efforts being done by the Humane League of Philadelphia. Team Vegan Philly also hopes to raise awareness of the benefits to both animals and people of leading a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle.

Members of Team Vegan Philly will run the marathon, half-marathon, or 8K race. Runners will train through group runs and discuss nutrition tips to prepare for the races.

We welcome all runnersfrom novices to professionals,” says Humane League Director Nick Cooney. We're a group of vegans and vegetarians that want to have fun running while raising money to benefit the lives of animals.

The Humane League is a Philadelphia-based non-profit animal protection organization that strives to create a more compassionate world for animals through education, campaigns and rescue.

The group is still looking for interested participants to join Team Vegan Philly. For more information or to register, visit www.teamveganphilly.com.
