What has 1,200 legs, lives in several countries, and
runs, swims, and bikes to stop animal abuse? It's the 2011 PETA Pack team, a
group of committed
individuals who were
able to wildly surpass their fundraising goal and raise $120,000 for PETA's Investigations &
Rescue Fund! On behalf of
the PETA Pack, a special thank-you goes out to this year's team sponsor, Nasoya, as well as to all the donors who contributed.
PETA Pack members receive 14 weeks of valuable coaching tips from team leaders to help them meet their
running goals, whether they are beginning runners or experienced triathletes.
Each member ultimately participates in a race of his or her choice in early autumn. Top
fundraisers receive great prizes, in addition to the satisfaction of getting
into shape while helping animals.

another resounding success, e-mail
Congratulations to the 2011 PETA Pack team!

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
