“Turkey trots” are a very popular Thanksgiving tradition. Usually, they’re organized events, with a large group of people and race volunteers, etc. But you don’t need to join a full race to run a Turkey Trot this Thanksgiving, just head right out your front door!
Instead of just running your usual route, though, you can still make Thursday’s run special. The fine folks at Dailymile are spearheading the “Feed the Turkey” virtual run this Thursday to benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. All it takes is pledging $1, $5, or $10, and then heading out for your run!
So this Thursday, instead of heading out to log the miles or pre-burn those dinner calories, give your run some extra meaning. Pledge a bit to St. Jude’s (hey, it’s cheaper than a real race entry!) and help give sick kids a chance to be thankful!
