To celebrate World Elephant Day (August 12), Pedal Clothing encourages you to participate in World Animal Protection’s Ride Bikes, Not Elephants virtual wellness challenge. Through this event, participants will raise awareness and essential funding to help elephants around the world. By pledging to ride bikes (or participating in any other fitness activity) rather than ride elephants, you can highlight the immense suffering elephants experience within the tourism and entertainment industries.
Unfortunately, animals abused in the entertainment industry are often separated from their families. Many elephants living in tourist venues around the world were either captured from the wild or bred in captivity all to be kept for human profit. They often endure ongoing physical and psychological abuse during training when they’re young all to become submissive enough to perform tricks, spend their long lives chained, and continuously give rides to paying tourists.
Whether you bike, run, swim or do another exercise of your choice, do something healthy for yourself every day while supporting majestic elephants in need! Every healthy activity you complete in this event will help World Animal Protection’s mission to save elephants and other animals in need. Also, the top fundraisers and fitness leaders have a chance to win some awesome prizes provided by World Animal Protection and our generous sponsors.
