Gotta Love a Guy Running in a Bunny Suit
James Fairman is the best. We need more guys like him raising awareness for rabbits.  Last week on July 22nd James ran a 10K in a bunny suit to raise awareness for the Rabbit Welfare Association and Fund in the UK.  The fact that he finished wearing a heavy (and I am sure suffocating rabbit suit) for the entire run would give anyone paws for thought.  But he hopped over the finish line somewhere in the middle of the herd at a respectable time.  See his website on the run at this Link
The weather here in the US this summer has been too hot in most places to walk, let alone run wearing a rabbit costume, but the rabbit suit run is a buntastic idea.  What James demonstrated so brilliantly (and with good humor) is there are many ways to get the conversation about the plight of rabbits started with the public.  Sometimes all it takes is a willingness to get out of your comfort zone and run with it.
