Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot
VIRTUAL FUN RUN
Thursday, Nov. 26, 2020
We are sad to say, the current record-level COVID-19 activity in our community has led us to cancel the 48th Annual Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot in-person race.
We know this fun run is a Thanksgiving tradition for many families, and we hope all will consider getting out and getting active on Thanksgiving morning in keeping with the spirit of Turkey Trot.
Your Support Still Matters
Turkey Trot is the only fundraiser for the Wahlert Catholic running programs – Men's and Women's Track & Field and Cross Country. You can still contribute in the following ways to help support our teams:
1) Purchase a limited edition 48th Annual Turkey Trot t-shirt (order by 3 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 19)
2) Participate in the virtual fun run to keep the tradition going strong.
For those who have already registered, your fee can be carried over for next year's race or contributed as a donation. Thank you!
