So far, 73 people have signed up for the Virtual Turkey Trot and donated about $1500. That’s a great start, but in a normal year, 300+ runners would donate $3000, and Loaves & Fishes is feeding many more people than usual. If you haven’t registered yet, please sign up before the end of Thanksgiving Day!
Greetings, Turkey Trotters!
The Finger Lakes Runners Club is hosting the 48th Annual Turkey Trot as a virtual fund run to benefit Loaves & Fishes of Tompkins County. Loaves & Fishes currently provides over 1200 meals every week to those in need, nearly three times more than last year at this time.
Run, walk, or push a stroller on a 5-mile course of your choice anytime before the end of Thanksgiving Day. No predictions. No times. No pies. Just future calories burned and meals for the hungry!
For 2020 to count toward your inclusion on the Turkey Trot Honor Roll, please register for the Virtual Turkey Trot online. The $10 registration fee is what we ask that you donate to Loaves & Fishes had we all run from Ithaca High School. If you wish, you can add an additional donation. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Loaves & Fishes to help them feed our community. Our goal is to raise at least $3000 to match the amount a normal Turkey Trot usually generates for Loaves & Fishes, and with your help, maybe we can exceed that number.
Hopefully, we will all be together again for the Turkey Trot in 2021, with extra pies awarded to the most accurate predictors!
Director, Turkey Trot
