Peace Ridge Sanctuary’s 5k Run for the Animals & 1 Mile Fun Walk

Peace Ridge Sanctuary invites you to join in the 2022 5k Run for the Animals & 1 Mile Fun Walk on October 8, 2022 at our Northeast Equine Facility in Freedom, Maine.  Our race is designed to support the lifesaving work Peace Ridge does every day. Help us to continue providing quality care to the animals, rescue more animals in need and aid in fostering compassion towards animals through encouraging a plant-based diet. The race is a 5k (3.1 miles –  ) and is a run or 1 mile walk open to all levels of physical fitness. It’s a great day to enjoy the company of fellow animal lovers & plant eaters.
