10/31/14 UPDATE: To pre-register at the $15 rate, please do so HERE. Anyone under 18, registers for FREE. Online registration is open until 7pm tonight, after which registering at the event is possible for $25. Everyone is welcome to attend - invite family and friends!

This an amazing opportunity for the Valley to top our aggressive 2014 goal of $16,000! Last year, you not only met, but greatly surpassed the goal, and this year, we know you can have another record-breaking year! All funds raised directly support Farm Sanctuary’s commitment to promote compassionate living through rescue, education, and advocacy.

The Phoenix Walk is a fun and exciting way to make a direct difference by raising awareness and funds to help rescued farm animals who depend on your advocacy efforts. Animals like Bob Harper, a piglet that found his way to safety at Farm Sanctuary...  

Consider inviting others to register as walkers and form a Walk Team. Now let's get started! Please register for the Phoenix Walk by clicking HERE.

    Thanks to your support, Phoenix raised $19,514 for farm animals. Another record-breaking year! We're so grateful to everyone who came together to take a stand in support of compassion for all. Phoenix’s highest-earning individual fundraiser was Joanne Milazzo Mizell, and the highest-earning team was Galliez. In further great news - the Phoenix‬ Walk advanced from #8 in the nation to #5 this year thanks to your tremendous heart and generosity for the animals at Farm Sanctuary. GREAT job everyone!

    There is a tremendous list of wonderful individuals, companies, and organizations to thank for the success of the 14th Annual Phoenix Walk for Farm Animals. We truly could not have pulled this off without all your help! Farm Sanctuary is working hard to finalize our Phoenix fundraising grand total, and we'll also be sharing with you the highest-earning individual fundraiser, highest-earning youth fundraiser, and highest-earning team. Stay tuned, and thank you everyone!
