About the Event

The 8th annual FAM Turkey Trot is a family friendly way to kick off your Thanksgiving, whether you're a competitive runner or want to bring your “flock” to join you and walk. Teams are encouraged in memory of a loved one, so that you can raise funds in their honor. Supporting the SHINE program at Blank Children’s Hospital, you’ll join fellow runners, joggers, and walkers in a fun morning and earn your turkey dinner. We can’t anticipate the weather, but we can guarantee a tradition for years to come!

A Raffle will also take place with tickets going on sale November 7th through race day. You do not need to be present to win. Click here or visit our Facebook page to see a list of raffle items and enter for a chance to win.
