Sponsored Half Marathon

In Aid of the Animal Protection Agency, Viva! and
the West Midlands Vegan Festival

Midlands Vegan Campaigns(MVC) member Kevin White, will take part in the Birmingham Half Marathon on Sunday 26th October 2008, in order to raise much needed funds for the Animal Protection Agency and Viva! and also to help fund the West Midlands Vegan Festival. The money raised will be split equally 3 ways. Animal Protection Agency



Viva!

Kevin White "I used to enjoy cross country running at school but that was only ever 1 or 2 miles and was over 20 years ago! I`ll be running the half marathon in my new Vegan Runners UK vest, but if I`m going to dispel the myths about vegans being unfit, I`m going to have to put in alot of hard work training in the weeks beforehand! The costs for the festival have gone through the roof (the venue alone cost over 2,500), but I know it`s going to be a huge success! It`s about time the West Midlands had our own vegan festival - if we can just cover our costs, it`s certain to become an annual event! So please sponsor me whatever you can afford. Thankyou."

Download a Sponsor Form

Not only is this a great way to raise funds, it will also help to alert potential festival-goers to the event! Please do your best to gather as many sponsors as possible. You could ask your friends, family, veggie/vegan group members etc. Whether 20p or 20, every penny will help and will be very gratefully received. Where possible, if sponsors can pay in advance, it`ll save us spending time/money chasing them up later! All cheques should be sent to the address on the sponsor form. Thankyou.

Vegetarian Shoes Many thanks to Vegetarian Shoes for kindly donating a pair of trainers for Kevin to run in.
