Counting Down to the 13th Annual Turkey Trot EVERY RUNNER IS A TURKEY… FOR A FAMILY IN NEED!
The 13th Annual Prodisee Pantry Turkey Trot runs through Old Towne Daphne this Saturday, October 22th with both a certified 5K Race and a 1-mile Fun Run/Walk. This year’s Family Friendly Festival will be even bigger complete with seasonal games, live music, and of course treats for the kids!
The 5K Race starts at 8 a.m. on Main Street at City Hall. It follows a fast course as it winds through Old Towne Daphne. The Fun Run/Walk begins at 9 a.m. Walkers are encouraged to participate in the Fun Run. We can’t forget about our teams! Prizes will be awarded for largest team, most funds raised, team spirit, most cans collected, cutest booth and more. So grab some friends, start training, and join in the fun.
Proceeds from the Turkey Trot benefit Prodisee Pantry, Baldwin County's largest nonprofit emergency food pantry. Turkey Trot participants really are a TURKEY…for a family in need! This event allows us to provide food insecure families all the fixings for a traditional “Norman Rockwell” type feast.
This community ministry brings hope by feeding physical, emotional hunger! Volunteers provided fresh local produce, meats, eggs, bread, canned staple foods and warm smiles to 10,141 families last year. That equates to 30,000 individuals who had healthy food to eat.
The Turkey Trot provides funding for Prodisee Pantry's Thanksgiving project. Last November, 1,400 families were blessed with nine tons of turkey and over 18 tons of special holiday foods in addition to the weekly emergency food allocation.
Each registration equals a turkey!
