It will be the Festival Foods Turkey Trot: Home Edition this year. It will feature a Subaru Crosstrek 2020 giveaway, courtesy of Bergstrom Automotive. The event’s theme is #KeepTheTraditionAlive.
Participants may choose a 5-mile run or 2-mile walk to “trot” with loved ones in their social bubble on or around Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 26. The event’s goal is to raise funds for local Boys & Girls Clubs and YMCAs. As always, 100 percent of event proceeds will support the two organizations.
“We’re planning a ‘home edition’ event that adds some new components – such as the vehicle giveaway and an online silent auction – while keeping the family fun and traditions alive,” said Brian Stenzel, community involvement senior director for Festival Foods.
In 2019, the event raised $360,000 for Boys & Girls Clubs and YMCAs throughout Wisconsin, which brought total funds raised since Festival Foods Turkey Trot began in 2007 to over $2.9 million.
“Our focus is #KeepTheTraditionAlive, and we believe that with the foundation we have built, we will accomplish that,” Stenzel said.
