Hopelink's Turkey Trot to raise funds to help low-income families
November 13, 2012 · 12:47 PM
Hopelink’s 12th annual Turkey Trot 5K family fun run and walk is set for Nov. 18 in Kirkland.
The three-mile course runs from Marina Park to Carillon Point and back, and is open to both runners and walkers. Registration begins at 10 a.m., with runners starting the race at 11 a.m. and walkers at 11:05 a.m.
Last year, 830 Turkey Trot participants raised nearly $225,000 in donations.
Presented by Fred Meyer and supported by a host of other local businesses, Hopelink’s annual Turkey Trot helps provide emergency services and holiday assistance to low-income families in east and north King County during the winter months.
The registration fee includes a Hopelink Turkey Trot T-shirt, and both runners and walkers are encouraged to seek pledged donations. The registration fee is $35 for individuals and $30 each for teams of four or more. Strollers and pets are free.
