This Thanksgiving Day race is in its 18th year. It is a community-wide event that strives to raise financial support for GraceWorks while promoting wellness and fitness for children, families, and the community. Last year, 3,300 participants and over 2,000 on-lookers took part in the day’s festivities. The Turkey Trot is an opportunity for your company to reach a concentrated mass of your target audience before, during, and after Thanksgiving Day while also making a positive impact in the community by helping GraceWorks.

When registering for the Turkey Trot, you may contribute to the GraceWorks Fuel Bag Program. Fuel Bags are small bags filled with nutritious and easily prepared food items. Each Friday, teachers discreetly pack the Fuel Bags in the children’s backpacks before they leave for the weekend, helping to supplement their food at home. You may also donate to this program online quickly and securely by visiting here.

Additionally, please consider asking friends and family to sponsor you. Our simple-to-use fundraising page makes it easy to make a positive impact on the lives of struggling Williamson County families by fundraising individually or as a team.
