This Thanksgiving invite your friends and family to help those less fortunate. For 20 years, the YMCA Turkey Trot 5k Run/Walk has helped raise money to support and help provide opportunities for lower income families to participate in YMCA programs and membership. All funds raised stay right here in our community and will provide a hand up to a family in need. We need your help making the Turkey Trot 5k run smoothly! We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
We have a variety of jobs available before, during and after the race! When you sign up, please check the dates adn times to ensure you are signing up for your desired shift.
