Turkey Trot Heroes

There has never been a greater need or a better time for Turkey Trot Heroes. Your generosity has made Tallahassee a better place and helped Turkey Trot donate $45,000 total (approximately $15,000 each) to the Shelter, The Boys and Girls Clubs and the Refuge House for at least two years in a row.

This Thanksgiving Day the race that is now the Tallahassee Turkey Trot will celebrate its 41st anniversary, and the 25th time it has been run on Thanksgiving Day. We are working hard to see a record-breaking turnout AND a record setting day of giving. Last year was another great Thanksgiving Day Celebration, as 5645 official runners responded generously with their support for The Shelter, The Refuge House and the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Big Bend. In addition, many runners brought nonperishable food items, clothes, toiletries and much more. They also supported the Kent Vann Partners in Excellence  Award Program helping to reach out to our middle and elementary schools. Let’s do it again!

Be an Official Turkey Trot Hero

Every participant supports these good ideas just by being part of the Tallahassee Turkey Trot. We like to recognize some that go above and beyond and qualify as Turkey Trot Heroes We thank you for your extra effort!!  In fact, we like to call you Turkey Trot Heroes, because that is what you are.

You can become a Turkey Trot Hero by donating as little as $30 to our beneficiaries (this does not include entry fees for any of the races). You can specify that $10 go to The Refuge House, $10 to The Shelter and $10 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Big Bend. Or you can specify that your entire donation go directly to the cause you designate. Heroes will receive a special commemorative gift. As a Turkey Trot Hero, you will also receive a special gold star that you can proudly wear on your race bib on Thanksgiving Day!  To be a Turkey Trot Hero look for the entry beside the Turkey Trot Hero line on the registration page.

And if you want to reach for an even higher level, you can be a Turkey Trot Super Hero by donating $50 or more (above the entry fee) to our special causes. You will receive an extra special commemorative gift.

And if you are a group, business or sponsor that wants to team up and be a Turkey Trot Guardian Angel Teams we have a plan for you too.  For $250, we will give you a special set up area on race morning, recognition on the Turkey Trot web page and in the magazine as a guardian angel team and 5 race entries.

Most importantly, your generosity will make a difference in someone’s life. You will have the opportunity to become a Turkey Trot Hero during the registration process; however, if you are unable to attend, you may still contribute by mailing a check or contribute online (no additional processing fees) at Eventbrite.com.
