Past Events

This is our 6th Annual Save-A-Turkey Trot, which have been happening in Victoria since 2010! Here’s a blog post on the previous edition in 2018! Started by OrganicAthlete in California, the Victoria chapter of OrganicAthlete organized the previous five editions. Unfortunately OrganicAthlete has folded as an organization, after over a decade of promoting veganism through sport, a few of us are working to start up a similar initiative through VeganStart, see below!

Here’s another the link to the 2018 event on the OA Victoria site, although it may disappear. Ahh history!
