Vegan Kalamazoo has a terrific location for its hydration table at the Kalamazoo Marathon. We’ll be at Mile 19, right inside the entrance to Verberg Park, off Gull Road. We’ll be tabling alongside Central High School’s Honor Society, and right next to the “Gummy Bear Trail” where dozens of students will be handing out Gummy Bears* to the runners. So we’re going to have a great time, and also have the opportunity to model joyful, fun, cool veganism to lots of high school students.
The Marathon is Sunday, May 3, and we’ll be tabling from 7:45 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. – please join us for all or part of that time. We’ll be handing out water to the runners, cheering them on, and generally having a blast–all while promoting joyful veganism. Email Hillary if you can volunteer, and please stop by even if you can’t. More info on the run here. Parking info here.
*Gummy Bears are sometimes vegan, sometimes not. The nonvegan ones contain gelatin, which is made from bones, hooves, and other yukky stuff. The No Meat Athlete has a good article on this, and lots of other good information for vegan running.
