Details

The Tofurky Company invites you to join in Tofurky Trot 2013, this Thanksgiving Day, November 28, 2013 at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, CA. Tofurky Trots are designed to support both the health and vitality of local communities and raise money for local groups supporting plant based diets. The race is 5k (3.1 miles) and is a run, trot, or walk open to all levels of physical fitness. It’s a great day to enjoy the company of fellow plant eaters and highlight the benefits of plant based diets on this largely carnivorous holiday.

Prizes and coupons will be awarded to the top male, female and children finishers as well as for best costumes There will also be random prize drawings, but the real focus is the non profit who we run to support (see below).

Before you eat your big meal with your friends and family, come trot with us and celebrate the bounty of the earth’s delicious plants with some great Tofurky folks!

Who are we running to support?
The National Museum of Animals & Society (NMAS) is the first museum of its kind – anywhere - dedicated to enriching the lives of animals and people by exploring our shared experience. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, NMAS addresses animal protection, animal studies (areas where humans and animals intersect: art, literature, film), and humane education in its collection, exhibitions, programming, and educational efforts. The Museum is opening its first exhibition space in Los Angeles in November 2013 with the "My Dog is My Home: The Experience of Human-Animal Homelessness" exhibit and appreciates Tofurky's support in this important endeavor. www.museumofanimals.org
