Are you a plant-powered runner? Or do you just love to go out for a long walk on a beautiful autumn morning? Want to spread the word that vegetarians are strong and healthy?

Then join the Toronto Vegetarian Team at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon on Sunday, October 20th! You can sign up to walk or run the 5k, 1/2 marathon or full marathon to raise funds to support TVA.

Everyone on the team receives a special discounted charity registration rate.

carlosBut that’s not all!

Thanks to our generous sponsors Vega, Fresh Restaurants, Marni Wasserman, VegNews Magazine, Know Thy Food, Chef Mary Hulbert, Monarch Park Stadium and Whole Foods, team members this year will get:

  • FREE fitness talk from Marni Wasserman at her brand new Delicious Knowledge studio
  • FREE yoga for runners class from Vega rep and FlipSwitch Studios
  • FREE raw cooking demonstration from chef Mary Hulbert
  • Tree-free subscription to VegNews magazine
  • Product samples from Vega

Plus our top three fundraisers will win fantastic prizes such as a gift certificate for a cooking class from Marni Wasserman, a $100 gift certificate to Fresh, a mail delivery subscription to VegNews Magazine, Vega products, veggie coconut “bacon” from Know Thy Food, track passes to Monarch Park Stadium and more!

Our goal is to raise $13,000 for TVA to expand our outreach program, distribute more vegetarian starter kits, and bring in more high profile speakers to the Annual Vegetarian Food Festival!

Most importantly, the larger our team is and the bigger our presence at the race, the louder our message that vegetarians are indeed strong, athletic and healthy. We hope you’ll join us to make these dreams a reality.

To join the Toronto Vegetarian Team please contact Barbi Lazarus at blazarus@veg.ca or 416-544-9800 to receive the special registration code and next steps.
