We are Mike and Joe, the father and son team behind the UK's first vegan frozen pizza company - One Planet Pizza! Pizza pioneers we may be, experienced marathon runners we are not - nevertheless, we are proud and determined to be supporting the incredible vegan charity VIVA! this year, and we need your help to raise some dough this #MooFreeMay!
Earlier this year, Mike and I had a crazy idea: we decided we would both run our very first marathon together! We are both extremely passionate to help promote veganism to the wider community, and show other runners just how well you can thrive on a plant based diet! So we laced up our trainers, put the dough down, and began training together. Despite Mike sustaining an injury early into our training, he has now made an amazing recovery (something he attributes to his vegan diet!) and with only 2 weeks to go until the big race,we're back on the tracks training once again!
We have a goal of £500, which will go towards helping fundraise the fantastic work of the team at the vegan charity VIVA!. Their current campaign, #MooFreeMay, encourages the British public to ditch dairy and try delicious dairy-free alternatives during the month of May. Dairy is not only a terribly cruel industry, it has been scientifically proven to be harmful to both the environment and our own health in many ways. We're passionate about helping VIVA! to encourage people to ditch the dairy!
