Mountain Valley Turkey Trot 5K
8th Annual Turkey Trot 5k fun run. Our Turkey Trot benefits our local Friday Backpack Program.
The Friday Backpack Program provides supplemental weekend food for elementary students who are identified as most in need by the school administrator(s). While children from low-income families receive nutritious meals during the school week as a part of the free/reduced meal program, the Friday Backpack Program fills an unmet need for the weekend when food is likely scarce at home. Bud Jackson’s Catering will be providing Turkey Chowder for this year’s Turkey Trot. We will have a tent out in our fitness park for everyone to enjoy their food and stay out of the weather.
Registration sponsors for this year’s event are Barreto Manufacturing Inc. and Nature’s Pantry. Thanks to these amazing sponsors participants under the age of 12 and over the age of 65 will be provided FREE registration costs.
Shirt sponsors for this year’s event are Red Cross Drug Store and Valley Insurance Group. Thanks to these amazing sponsors participants under the age of 12 and over the age of 65 will be provided a FREE Turkey Trot Shirt.
We will also have a raffle at this year’s event with prizes donated by Blue Mountain Outfitters, Apple Eye Care, La Grande Grocery Outlet, Hines Meat Co., Joe & Sugars, Le Bebe Cakes Coffee Shop & Bakery, and R&C Family Store.
This year’s Turkey Trot is going to be a great event. If you haven’t started to include this event in your family traditions please consider doing so. It is a fun, healthy way to celebrate the season and raise money for a worthy cause.
We hope to see you here at Mountain Valley at 2519 Cove Ave, in La Grande Oregon on November 23rd at 9:00 AM to participate in this year’s Turkey Trot.
