Before you indulge in that family dinner on Thanksgiving Day, lace up your sneakers and head on over to the 10th annual Turkey Trot!
Whether you’re a seasoned marathoner or a newbie jogger/walker, every step counts towards making a positive impact. You’ll have the choice to gobble up those miles by choosing to run/walk a 5k or 10k to help fundraise for The Midnight Mission. If you have kiddos, there’s also an adorable Widdle Wobble for ages 12 and under. All are welcome!
The Midnight Mission is an organization that offers a path to self-sufficiency to those experiencing homelessness. Everyone who participates gets an event t-shirt, finisher medal, and bib. All 5k and 10k participants will be chip-timed. Even if you don’t celebrate the holiday — this is still a powerful way to spend the day as it all goes toward a good cause. So bring your friends, family, and turkey suits for a good wholesome time.
