2024 Team VPA Application
The Vegan Powered Athletes (VPA) team was established in 2021 with a clear mission: to promote the Vegan message through the world of sports. This diverse team consists of athletes ranging from beginners to seasoned podium achievers, participating in various sports such as triathlons, running, cycling, rucking, crossfit, and Spartan races. While their primary focus is on training hard and excelling in their respective sports, they also value the journey and the camaraderie that comes with being a part of a team. They prioritize being friendly, encouraging, and supportive, regardless of an individual's background. If you exhibit these qualities, as well as a desire to engage in discussions about Veganism without uttering a word, this team is perfect for you. Whether you are motivated to protect animals, the environment, or your own health, or if you simply want to spread awareness by wearing Vegan apparel, Team VPA offers a community of like-minded individuals who are dedicated to living a vibrant, ethical, and Vegan lifestyle.
Team VPA welcomes athletes of all levels and from all countries across the globe. Since its inception, the team's main goal has been to promote an active Vegan lifestyle by adopting a positive, educational, and inspiring approach. We believe in meeting people where they are at in their individual journeys and becoming embodiments of what a Vegan can achieve. Through their participation in sports and the activities they engage in, Team VPA members aim to spread the Vegan message worldwide. And what better way to do so than through the gear they wear? The team recognizes that their apparel presents a unique opportunity to plant a seed and inspire strangers they encounter along their journeys.
