I'm sure you've all seen our signs around the studio and received our e-mails about Farm Sanctuary's Walk for Farm Animals but here is a little more information. The walk is an opportunity for those who want to stop animal abuse and help farm animals and who are concerned with the cruel and horrific practices of factory farming to take a stand in support of compassion for all! The Walks raise vital funds for Farm Sanctuary’s life-saving work and bring together thousands of people to promote kindness towards animals. When you walk, you give hope to billions of farm animals who are suffering right now on factory farms. You do not have to be a vegetarian to participate. The walk is about animals be treating fairly! The Walk for Farm Animals is a positive way to speak out on behalf of animals who cannot speak for themselves and to make a real difference in their lives.
The Walk will be held rain or shine. Dogs are welcome at this event. There will be music, delicious food, and raffle prizes after the Walk! Children's activities will include face painting (by Molly!) and a farm animal costume/stuffed farm animal "parade." The walk route is two laps around the Boston Common and the total distance is just over two miles.
