Celebrate your friends, family & community at the 6th Annual Turkey Trot in Memory of Christine Allen to benefit the SLO County Food Bank.
Come bring your friends and family, Thanksgiving morning to have some fun while raising money for food for those in need. Every $1 we raise buys $10 of food at the Food Bank! Last year we raised over $13,000 so $130,000 of food!
T-Shirts and Caps will be for sale at the event. All proceeds will go to the Food Bank.
This is a “fun run” and ‘walk’ for the family which is all ages and dogs (dogs must be on short leashes).
The trot includes a 1 mile, 5K and 10K. Line up starts at 8:00 with the 5K and 10K starting at 8:30. There will be a large race clock/timer so you can see your runtime. The one mile will start at 8:45.
Entry fee: The event is Free but we ask you to donate $1 or more and or purchase a tshirt or cap which will go to the SLO County Food Bank for those community members who are less fortunate than us and are currently in need of food. No one should go hungry in our community! $1 dollar buys $10 of food, but $5 dollars will buy $50! And most of us can afford $5 for the benefit of someone who is hungry.
