There are 52 weeks in a year, why not make at least one of them meat-free? Now in its fifth year, US VegWeek (April 22-28) is a fun way to explore a wide variety of meat-free foods and discover the many benefits of vegetarian eating—for our health, the planet, and animals. This year’s celebration, kicking off on Earth Day, will be bigger and better than ever!

Former NBA star and vegan advocate John Salley will be kicking off Ann Arbor’s full week of vegan events! He’ll be joined by Mayor John Heiftje who will issue a Proclamation making Ann Arbor VegWeek “official.”

John Salley, former Detroit Pistons player and four-time NBA champion, is a father, athlete, actor, entrepreneur, talk show host, philanthropist, wellness advocate, and vegan. John has adopted a plant-based lifestyle and is a frequent speaker at VegFests across the United States. As a Wellness Advocate, one of John’s main missions in life is to educate people about the benefits of living a healthier lifestyle through better eating habits.

John will be at the Ann Arbor Big Kickoff event at Downtown Home & Garden, 210 S. Ashley Street at 7pm on Monday, 4/22. Find out more here.
