Chicago Walk for Farm Animals

Join us for Farm Sanctuary's Chicago Walk For Farm Animals! This Walk is a fun and friendly event, so come out and join us!

Farm Sanctuary was founded in 1986 to educate about abuses of factory farming and to encourage a new awareness and understanding of farm animals. Farm Sanctuary rescues animals, educates the public about the centrality of the vegan diet to compassionate living, and advocates for animals through investigation, prosecution, and legislation.

The official Walk for Farm Animals will begin at 10:00 but check-in will start at 9:00 am. Early adult registration is only $15 (event-day registration will be $25; Children under 18 are FREE). For more information and to register for the Walk with ChicagoVeg Team:

  • Go to events.walkforfarmanimals.org/team/ChicagoVeg
  • Click "Join This Team" (on the right)
  • Choose your "Participant Type"
  • Enter your "Fundraising Goal"
  • Click on "Join a Team" as your "Role"
  • Select "ChicagoVeg" team
  • Proceed with the registration

We collected over $1,600 last year (see the picture below).
Please help us to reach our goal of $2,000 this year!

We are excited to support the Walk! Please join ChicagoVeg Team to help in supporting compassion for all!

    I had a great time walking and raising awareness for farm animals. It was a treat that Gene Baur walked with us and was so generous with his time.

    Good Morning Walkers!!

    I have a challenge for you! We need $127.00 to meet our goal! I know we can do it! Everyone has done a great job fundraising! Thanks for your awesome efforts!

    Hi ChicagoVeg Walkers!

    We have raised $1,663.00!! You all have done an amazing job!

    We are just $337.00 away from our goal of $2,000.00! It's down to the wire to get those last minute donations in. Let's impress our fellow Chicago walkers and Mr. Gene Baur himself by reaching our goal. I know we can do it!

    Post the walk on your Facebook and Twitter pages and don't forget to invite your friends and family to walk with us!

    I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!

    Is this group meeting at a location? I would like to know so I could meet some new people!!

    September 12, 2013

    • Vadim

      Elissabeth (and everyone else who is new!) - The walk is not an exclusive ChicagoVeg event but we rather support a bigger event that is organized by Farm Sanctuary. While we don't plan to meet at a specific location, please make sure find me/Andrea/LeoLin/Megan so we could meet you and hopefully introduce to some other people who will be around.
      I and probably other ChicagoVeg organizers will wear ChicagoVeg t-shirts so look for people wearing ChicagoVeg t-shirt!

    Hi, I am new to all of this. I just joined your group a couple of months ago and have signed up for the walk this Saturday as part of your team. I haven't met anyone yet from the group and haven't participated in any walks of this type before, so I'm not really sure what to do. Is there a location where members of the group meet? I would love to meet other members, but I'm not if that's how it works. Sorry to sound ignorant here...just not sure.

    Also, I was just wondering how it works if any friends of mine have expressed that they would like to make a pledge on my behalf. How does that work and how do I go about this?

    Thanks for any help. I'm looking forward to this!

    Cheers,
    Georgiann :)

    • Bobbie

      I've been able to raise $50.00 so far. How do I handle the donations? Is it done on-line by credit card?

      September 12, 2013

    • Vadim

      Bobbie - Yes, anyone including yourself can simply add a donation via credit card through your web page (http://events.walkfor...­) by clicking "Support Me".

    Reply to Nancy Flood: I recall a woman named Brooke leading the walk in past years.

    June 13, 2013

  • Nancy F.

    Ken, which "woman" are you referring to? I have helped plan for the past few years, but there have been other ladies that have helped as well.
