Registration for Community Foundation’s Give NCW Turkey Trot Now Open
Registration has opened for the Give NCW Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Day in Wenatchee at https://runsignup.com/turkeyncw, the Community Foundation of NCW announced today.
Give NCW Turkey Trot will feature timed 5K and 10K runs as well as an untimed, free 1K kids run that will start and finish on the Apple Capital Loop Trail adjacent to Pybus Public Market. All three distances are open to walkers, too.
The first 750 people who sign up for the 5K and 10K are guaranteed a commemorative winter beanie hat.
The event will officially kick off the Community Foundation’s annual Give NCW fundraising campaign for nonprofit organizations in North Central Washington.
The Wenatchee Valley Medical Group is the Turkey Trot’s presenting sponsor, which is allowing the Community Foundation to keep registration fees low and maximize the contributions back to the campaign’s nonprofit organizations. While registration fees in the Pacific Northwest for 5K and 10K runs range from $40 to $80, registration for the Give NCW Turkey Trot will be $20 for the 5K and $30 for the 10K. In addition, Girls on the Run program participants and Community for the Advancement of Family Education (CAFÉ) participants will receive free entries.
All proceeds from Turkey Trot will be shared equally among the nonprofit organizations that participate in the Give NCW campaign through the Give to All pool. Nonprofits are encouraged to participate in the Thanksgiving Day event. The “Best Dressed Individual” will receive $500 from the Community Foundation to donate to a Give NCW nonprofit of their choice, and the “Most Spirited Group” will receive $1,000 from the Community Foundation to donate to a Give NCW nonprofit of their choice.
