My story

[p]I will be participating in Ronda dels Cims race, giant route around the Principality of Andorra, and part of Andorra Ultra Trail event. Total length of 170 km,13500 m of elevation gain, average altitude of 2082 m, 16 peaks or passes above 2.400 m and very technical terrain make this race one of the toughest in the world.[/p][p]Being vegan for almost 10 years and being aware of immense amount of pain and suffering that farmed animals endure in our society, I am dedicating this endeavour to all the victims of factory farming and want to raise awareness about the issue.[/p][p]I am aiming to raise funds for Compassion in World Farming, an organisation that's been fighting against factory farming for decades.[/p][p]In their own words:[/p][p]"Compassion in World Farming was [url=https://www.ciwf.org.uk/about-us/annual-review/]founded 50 years ago[/url] in 1967 by a [url=https://www.ciwf.org.uk/about-us/our-story/]British farmer[/url] Peter Roberts who became horrified by the development of modern, intensive factory farming. We are guardians of Peter’s visionary belief; that a society can be judged by the way in which it feeds its people and treats its animals.[/p][p]Today we campaign peacefully to end all factory farming practices. We believe that the biggest cause of cruelty on the planet deserves a focused, specialised approach – so we are relentlessly focused on ending factory farming."[/p][p]The organisations's impact on farm animal welfare: [url=https://www.ciwf.org.uk/our-impact/]https://www.ciwf.org.uk/our-impact/[/url][/p][p]Some of Compassion in World Farming's campaigns include:[/p][p]End the cage age[/p][p]End log distance live animal transport[/p][p]Rethink Fish, Stop the machine[/p][p]Honest Labelling[/p][p]Antibiotics health crisis[/p][p]investigations etc.[/p][p]Visit their page at: [url=https://www.ciwf.org.uk]https://www.ciwf.org.uk[/url][/p][p]More about the race:[/p][vmgvideo class="ql-video" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/sI-BvU9haZ0?showinfo=0&rel=0&iv_load_policy=3"][/vmgvideo][p][br][/p][p]All the costs associated with the fundraiser will be covered by me and all the proceeds go to Compassion in World Farming.[/p][p][br][/p]
