The Five W’s
Who: The event will benefit the charity Best Buddies Missouri. This nonprofit organization works to create one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). In fact, it’s the largest organization in the world working to end the social, physical and economic isolation of the 200 million people with IDD.
What: Turkey Trot is an American tradition that’s held all over the world, and brings over 60,000 runners together each year to celebrate the things they are most thankful for.
When: The race will be held on November 28, and will begin with packet pickup in the morning at 7:20 until 8:15. The kids dash starts at 8:30, and the 8k starts at 8:45.
Where: The course will take runners through the scenic path of Tower Grove Park. If you’d like to view the map ahead of time of the race, you can see that here!
Why: This race is the perfect way to celebrate Thanksgiving by giving back and appreciating your health! Even if you choose not to run, there are still ways to participate. You can either volunteer to help out, or just a simple donation could make a difference. If you need another incentive to join in on the fun, awards will also be given out to the top 3 participants, male and female in each age group and overall. But make sure to stick around to get your medal!
