The Community Foundation of NCW is proud to host the Give NCW Turkey Trot, a new Thanksgiving Day run in Wenatchee to kick off the Give NCW annual giving campaign.

The event will offer timed 5K and 10K options as well as an untimed 1K fun run for children. All proceeds from the event will be shared equally among the nonprofit organizations that participate in the Give NCW campaign through the Give to All pool.

We are excited to partner with the Wenatchee Valley Medical Group who will be the presenting sponsor of the event. Their sponsorship will keep registration fees low and maximize the contributions back to the nonprofit organizations.

The Give NCW Turkey Trot will be $20 for the 5K and $30 for the 10K; the kids’ run is free of charge.

The start and finish lines will be located on the East side parking lot of Pybus Market and the run will take place on the Apple Capitol Loop Trail along the riverfront.

CFNCW is encouraging participants to have fun with this event - awards will be offered not only for the top finishers but also for the best costume and most spirited group effort. Before and after the run, coffee and snacks compliments of Café Mela, Crunch Pak, and other local businesses will be offered. Note that Pybus Market will not be open on Thanksgiving Day.

Best Group Effort will win a $1,000 Giving Card to redeem on Give NCW

Best Dressed will win a $500 Giving Card to redeem on Give NCW.

Come join the fun and start your turkey day of right!

I am currently pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Computer Science at Stanford.

In SSI I built a rocket and launched it.


Aero Methow Rescue Service


Due to being rural, remote, and geographically isolated, we must be prepared to do more than respond to emergencies. We have become a healthcare partner who fills gaps in service. The grant allowed our board the time and ability to work with a Strategic Planner to modify our plan to address those gaps.


Chelan Douglas Volunteer Attorney Services


The grant provided funds to hire a Housing Justice and Outreach Coordinator to visit rural and underserved areas. Rosie’s bilingual and bicultural skills and experience have increased equity of service. Rosie is building partnerships with local organizations through events such as the Columbia Valley Community Health’s Back to School Drive, as well as posting yard signs.

My father was a migrant agricultural worker who eventually started his own cherry and apple orchard. He told me if I wanted to live a better life, I had to get an education. I plan on starting a career with the Chelan PUD with a passion for renewable energy and in turn give back to my parents and community for supporting my dreams.
