So you’ve probably heard of or been to some form of a turkey trot in the past–but how about a tofurkey trot? Just such an event is taking place this Sunday, November 19th at Deep Run Park.
Over 70 Richmonders will participate in the Richmond Tofurky Trot at Deep Run Park to raise money for Porchlight Animal Sanctuary. Tofurky Trots, similar in nature to turkey trots, are family friendly 5K run/walk events, organized throughout the country to raise money and awareness for veg-friendly lifestyles.
Porchlight Animal Sanctuary is a new nonprofit based out of Richmond, Virginia with a mission of saving the lives of animals by providing sanctuary and inspiring compassionate action through education and outreach. Porchlight will be a permanent home for previously farmed animals, where they can live in peace and safety, and will be given health care and compassion.
The Richmond Tofurky Trot will take place at Deep Run Park from 11:00 AM until 2:00 PM on Sunday. Advance registration is required and is $30 for adults, $15 for kids, and free for those under six. The post-Trot celebration is open to all and will take place in a picnic shelter at the park following the conclusion of the race.
