Running for Chickens?

Now I don’t know about you, but going out running for 13.1 miles is not my idea of a fun way to spend a Sunday morning. However, 13 miles is a piece of vegan cake for some people, especially when running to educate others. PETA’s very own Nicole and Lindsay sweated it up yesterday in a half marathon in Louisville, Kentucky (headquarters of none other than KFC) to spread the message of KFC’s cruelty.

Donning yellow sports bras and shorts, Lindsay and Nicole caused quite a stir for the 2 hours and 21 minutes they ran with messages such as “Boycott KFC” and “KFC Tortures Chicks” written on themselves. Check it out:

They wanted to spread the message that no one should support a company that supports cruelty to animals. Click here to learn more about KFC, and if you haven’t yet, be sure to check out our “Super Chick Sisters” game.

Yay for Lindsay and Nicole! You girls rock!

PS – I spent the last few days at a conference with Pulin in Austin, and he would just not stop talking about Lindsay and Nicole and how cute they must look in their “tiny yellow outfits” (his words). I prefer Zach Braff sporting tiny yellow scrubs myself (jk), but to each his/her own.

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
