Thanks to your participation, we were able to bring awareness, money and food for the organization ALIVE! which supports our neighbors most in need. Besides all the wonderful canned goods you brought and the $400 you donated on site, a check for $5,000 was presented after the race to this very worthy non-profit. The Turkey Trot also supports DC Road Runners - a non-profit running club dedicated to promoting the sport of running in the DC Region. Finally, the race provides critical funds for the Del Ray Business Association which provides support to the many small locally owned businesses in Del Ray, they sponsor year round free neighborhood events for residents & visitors, they annually present a scholarship for the Scholarship Fund of TC Williams High School and throughout the year provide donations to such worthy non-profits as the Alexandria Police Foundation.
We would also like to thank all the sponsors who helped make the race happen take a look at their logos below and download the Virtual Race Packet which is filled with coupons for Del Ray businesses.
Additionally, knowing what you thought of the race is very important to us, if you have a couple of minutes please complete our post race survey.
A very special thank you to all the volunteers that gave up their holiday to make sure the Turkey Trot was able to happen. We hope they were able to express how excited we were to have you participating. The Turkey Trot is a very unique race in that after 41 years, we now have multiple generations running together and volunteering together. Wonderful traditions that we look forward to continuing.
Thank you for donating your time and kindness in building a stronger community. We all greatly appreciate your willingness to help all of us.
See you next year.
The Turkey Trot Team
