DONATIONS
The YMCA and the Catholic Harvest Food Pantry are once again conducting a food drive at the race. Like the Turkey Trot, the food drive continues to grow each year and we hope to continue that trend in 2018! Food pantry volunteers will be onsite to accept donations of non-perishable food items at race packet pick up and the morning of the race. The Pantry thanks you for your continued support.

Please also consider supporting LIVESTRONG at the YMCA. This FREE 12-week, research-based program supports cancer survivors in regaining their physical, emotional and spiritual strength and is conducted in a small group environment that includes individualized attention for each participant. Adult survivors are eligible to join the program during all stages of recovery. LIVESTRONG at the YMCA also serves and embraces the families and caregivers that have been affected by the disease by providing a free family membership throughout the course of the program. Simply choose a “turkey part” for your level of giving race registration form or online to help those in our community affected by cancer.
