But it hasn’t had its very own Turkey Trot. That is, until now.
For the first time ever, the Oakland Turkey Trot is hosting a 5K race around Lake Merritt on Thanksgiving morning to benefit the Food Bank and other local non-profits. One-hundred percent of donations via this link will come straight to us.
The family-friendly event has races for all ages and running-levels, and you can even run in teams. Use the code “ACCFB” to get $10 off registration!
Fundraise for the Food Bank
Plus, if you want to taking your trottin’ even further, you can turn your Turkey Trot into a fundraiser. Once you create a custom page, send it along to your teammates, family, friends, or neighbors. It’s a perfect way to act on your gratitude, and share your holiday with Alameda County children, seniors, and families who are facing hunger and food insecurity this holiday season and year-round.
Plus, for every $1 you raise, we can provide $6 worth of food. (Please note, however, that all participants must still register to participate in the 5K — fundraising is a separate, super-special bonus option.)
See you on the track! And if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us.
