NBC’s The Biggest Loser star trainer, Bob Harper has recently become the first celebrity spokesperson for the Walk for Farm Animals, a national event to celebrate and promote compassion for farm animals and to raise money for the support of rescue, education and advocacy work of Farm Sanctuary. The 2010 Walk for Farm Animals, in which Bob will be the spokesperson for, is the largest organized North American event of farm animals in history, proving that the egregious treatment of animals raised for food has become a national issue. Bob Harper in a recent interview with Farm Sanctuary says he thinks cows atre treated “like they’re light fixtures, like they’re not real and don’t have blood running through them. It’s just shocking to me.” Bob goes on to say how he feels the animals have real emotions just as we all do and he wants to raise awareness.
Bob Harper, who happens to be a vegan himself credits his vegan lifestyle for his good health and also wants to spread the word for people to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. Bob goes on to say “One thing I tell people all the time when it comes to going to the grocery store, it’s like you are making a vote…It’s all about the foods you are eating….because we can no longer have blinders on; we can no longer just think ‘okay, well it doesn’t affect me,’ because these issues affect us all.” For more information on Walk for Farm Animals 2010 and to register for the Walk nearest you, please check out walkforfarmanimals.org.
