About

Since 1986, Farm Sanctuary walks and endurance events have brought thousands of people together to get active for farm animals. The Plant Powered Run & Walk for Farm Animals was designed to promote the benefits of plant-based living, while educating the public on the deep emotional lives of farm animals and advocating for reform.

We’re counting on you and your fellow compassion champions to pledge to help us raise money to continue in our fight for change. Join us. Together, we can outpace animal cruelty on behalf of the hundreds of rescued farm animals at Farm Sanctuary and the billions of others who deserve freedom from harm.

When I'm out running, I just realize how lucky I am. And I'm grateful for the fact that I'm able to do that. And when you come to beautiful areas, I appreciate that. I breathe that in. And it makes me more motivated and interested in creating that sort of a world for other animals who never experience it.


Around this country, there are millions of animals in small cages and crates where they can't move. Now you contrast that with what it is like to be at Farm Sanctuary, where the animals have expansive pastures. They're able to run freely. They're able to enjoy their lives and express themselves.


And by participating in the Plant Powered Run, you're helping to create that kind of world for other animals, where they can run. So we run. And they're able to run free. And it's a beautiful parallel.


We are on this Earth with all these other animals. And instead of crowding them into these crates and clogging up our own hearts and our own compassion, we can open that up. And the Plant Powered Runs are a great way to do that.

Fundraising Tips

The Plant Powered Run & Walk for Farm Animals plays a key role in Farm Sanctuary’s funding and operations. We rely on individuals like you to help us bring about change for farm animals. By raising money, you directly support our rescue, education, and advocacy work. Because of you, we will help more animals than ever before!

Raising money for animals is easy!

Follow these simple guidelines to raise even more money for farm animals!

  • Plan. Before asking for money, decide what your fundraising goal will be. Select deadlines for yourself. Keep track of who you ask, and when, so you are able to send individual reminders.
  • Ask everyone. Remember that nobody likes cruelty to animals — no matter their dietary choices — and most people are shocked to hear what happens on factory farms. Choose an animal story, such as the tale of Frank, a runaway bull who escaped slaughter at a live market, to help make your case. Don’t be afraid to show your passion—your friends and family will care if you care.
  • Share your story! Reach out to friends, family, and co-workers and share on your social media channels. Ask that they donate through your personal giving page and be sure to include a link!
