After working with peta2â€”PETA’s youth divisionâ€”to help promote the riding extravaganza Flatcrap and to shoot a pro-vegetarian public service announcement, BMX pro Aaron Behnke decided he’d like to do a little more to fight animal abuse.
Aaron and his sponsors, Etnies and UGP, have joined with peta2 to create an awesome online contest giveaway. One lucky winner will receive a T-shirt, beanie, pair of socks, and stickers from UGP plus a hot pair of PETA pal Taj Mihelich signature shoes. Second-and third-place winners will take home a T-shirt, pair of socks, and stickers. Fifty runners-up will each receive a poster of Aaron’s PSA. All that contestants have to do is go to peta2.com and register to win.
Does Aaron feel he’s sacrificing anything in order not to eat or wear any animal products? Hardly:
â€œI’ve been wearing Etnies for the past six years,â€? says Aaron. â€œThey make a lot of synthetic shoes. The Trauma 2 is my personal favoriteâ€”and it’s only made synthetic.â€?
Aaron joins an ever-growing list of athletes and musiciansâ€”including Ed Templeton, My Chemical Romance, Taj Mihelich, Bright Eyes, Carey Hart, and The Beastie Boysâ€” who have teamed up with peta2 to inspire kids to challenge outdated, cruel attitudes about animals.
