Dear friends, family and everyone else who is not yet friends (or family!) 

 

We, Isabelle and Noah, are not only each other's live partners but also each others workout buddies. While we have different skill levels, we both share a deep passion for living a conscious life, where every decision matters. A major part of that is avoiding all harm towards other, non human, animals.

We have been vegan for a combined 7 years and through out our vegan journey, have spent a lot of time thinking about how we can inspire other people to abstain from eating/wearing or harming animals. We deeply care about making an impact and sharing how fulfilling our vegan journey has been, both from a mental and emitonal perspective as well as health aspect. 

Last year, we sat down with Rachel McCrystal, the wonderful executive director of the Woodstock Sanctuary, for our podcast, The Plantiful Podcast. We left feeling incredibliy inspired by her work at the sanctuary and decided to find a way to support her.

So we combined our passion for the vegan cause, with our crazy atheltic endeavors and decided to sign up for our first ever Otillow (Swedish for: Swim Race), taking place in April 2018 in Georgia. The goal is to raise awarenes for the work Woodstock Animal Sanctuary is doing, while we are preparing for this 6 mile run and 2 mile swim endeavor. We will be running and swimming in wetsuits from Island to Island - while being teatrerd to each other. Not only do we want to raise awareness and money for the Woodstock Sanctuary, but we also want to show you all how well two vegans can train and race without harming animals.

Our goal is to raise $3000 for the Woodstock Animal Sanctuary for Trident the horse and Fawn the cow, who both have prosthetics, that are very expensive but permit our friends to continue living a happy and honorable life.

Trident was born with a leg deformity that made him seem worthless to the Amish farmers in Indiana who wanted to use him as a buggy horse and breeder. Because of his deformity, Trident was going to be killed at just three months old but luckily someone reached out to the Woodstock Sanctuary and he found a new home. Fawn’s mother was confined and chained in a milking stall where she couldn’t turn around or lie down. She was forced to give birth to Fawn standing up. In the process, Fawn fell into the concrete manure pit behind the row of cows. Doomed to die because his fractured knee was not treated correctly, Fawn was saved by a local woman, Jennifer, who reached out to the Sanctuary for help.

Trident and Fawn are only two of many animals who get killed every year because they are considered 'useless' and unproductive. But we care about them and don't think any animals should ever be treated as commodities.

Any donation, of any size, would be a wonderful support for this cause and for us, while we are training for this race that we dedicate to our 4 legged friends. We hope you consider supporting us and the Woodstock Sanctuary on this journey and send you tons of love in advance!
