How did you hear about "Vegan Life Colorado" meetup group?

Keith Akres

What made you decide to go vegan or try veganism, and explore a more compassionate, healthy lifestyle (answer as simply or as detailed as you like)?

As a kid, my family would sometimes go deer hunting. I always hoped the deer would get away. I had thought of going vegetarian as I grew, but didn't, mostly because of the traditions engrained in me from my upbringing. About 6 years ago, my dad passed away because of colon cancer. While he was struggling with the cancer, I read a great deal about how to fight it and prevent it. I found that eating meat was a major cause of the cancer. A little before he died, I decided to become vegetarian. Going vegan was something that just grew on me. It seemed like the right thing to do. It has come to the point where I don't want to touch milk, eggs, meat.

What kind of activities would you like to see the group participate in, if you have anything specific you would like to do (note that our members are welcome to suggest and schedule vegan friendly events for consideration by our organizers)?

Any kind of sports contest...soccer, tag, ping pong, wrestling, boxing, running racing, roller skate racing, etc.

NOTE: We only require a "YES" RSVP if you plan to attend a gathering. Please don't RSVP "NO" to gatherings you don't plan to attend. "NO" RSVPs only create email for organizers. Only RSVP "NO" when you need to cancel a "YES". Make sense? Thanks!

Introduction

I've been a vegan for about a year and a vegetarian for about 6 years. I'm married, have 4 kids (19, 17, 14, 11), 2 cats, and 2 fish. It would be fun to meet other vegans in the area.
