The Great American Meatout Race for Health

5K USATF Sanctioned Race in Delaware Park

More and more people are cutting meat out of their diets. There’s a growing trend to eat healthier, and to curb the risk of longterm health issues by increasing the amount of greens and veggies in one’s diet.

On Sunday, March 18, Asha Sanctuary and the Buffalo Vegan Society are hosting The Great American Meatout Race for Health at Delaware Park/Hoyt Lake and Marcy Casino, 199 Lincoln Parkway. The event will be centered around a Health 5K Run/Walk. You might recall that Asha Sanctuary is home to Albert the Super Cow. What you might now know is that since 1985, food/animal rights activists around the world have been celebrating March 20 (the first day of spring) by hosting events called “Meatouts”. The day is a way to introduce people to the benefits of “compassionate eating”. The three components behind a Meatout are: health, helping the environment, and saving animals.

Meatout has gained so much world-wide popularity, it is now celebrated throughout the week of Sunday, March 18th – Saturday, March 24th

The Great American Meatout Race for Health kicks off the week that is dedicated to cutting meat out of the diet. It’s a time to celebrate love for vegan food, while recognizing all of the benefits that come along with living healthier lives.
