It’s time to rally up and get ready to run for animals! The PETA Pack is getting into lean, green, animal-loving machine shape, and we want you to be a part of it!
Right now, you’re probably wondering, what IS the PETA Pack? Here’s the skinny: It’s a half-marathon training and fundraising program, and the run takes place this November. Sign up with the pack, and you’ll get everything you need to start training, getting into shape, and, of course, raising funds to support PETA’s work to help animals.
We’re putting together a strong team of compassionate individuals, and we even have peta2 Street Team member, actor, singer, vegan, and awesome animal rights activist Renee Olstead leading our Los Angeles team! If you live in the L.A. area, sign up, and you can run with Renee during the Malibu International Half-Marathon—how cool is that?!
Not in L.A.? No sweat—you can get your friends and family together and race from anywhere! If you’re not up for the run, there are ways to help animals from the sidelines, too. A great place to start is by signing up for the Street Team, just like Renee did. So get moving!
Hello! My name is Nina, and I am a musician-in-training, and I play 7 instruments. I am a liberal, an LGBT activist, avid reader, composer, singer, and poi spinner. I am vegan, and a strong supporter of animal rights.
I have always lived in Los Angeles but my family and I went to Mexico for my parents wedding. So we came back to LA. I don't like LA but were here already what can I do unless I move out and find my own housing. I have always liked animals and it was til I was like about 14 when I learned about tests they do on animals and I began to explore animal cruelty because I was interested it in it. I have watched videos that just broke my heart so that's why today I'm doing all I can to not buy anything that has harmed an animal and I'm vegetarian .
