Run This One Turkey Trot  

Anywhere You Like

THE VIRTUAL RACE

At NYCRUNS, we believe certain truths are self-evident and one of those truths is that you should be able to run a Turkey Trot with your friends and family on Thanksgiving. It won’t be the same as last year, but I think you’ll like what we’re cooking and you’re going to want to bring your friends. Lace up your shoes and get ready to dig in.

You can run any distance you want and if you want (and if It’s safe), you can of course run with your friends and family. Please make sure you all choose the same team so we can group you TOGETHER in the results. On Thanksgiving Day, make sure you wear the Turkey Trot face wrap out on your run. It can be used as a mask, cap, do rag, baclava, neck warmer, hair tie and more. Finally (and if you ask us most importantly), make sure you use your medallion coaster at Thanksgiving Dinner wherever you are. Your friends, your family, and all of us will have one. Best. Potluck. Ever.

Finally, a portion of the proceeds will be going to a slew of worthy non-profits. We'll also be actively encouraging donations and if you want to add one to the mix, please use the form listed in your registration receipt. We will be setting this up on our new Run This One fundraising platform in early October.

HOW IT WORKS

Most importantly, have fun.

You can run or walk anywhere you want, including a treadmill. You may also choose to bike your miles. You can track your miles any way you want and with any device you want.

Once you've run, you'll submit your miles through  our new Run This One results system which is accessible to registered runners via their dashboard. You can automatically sync via MapMyRun and Garmin Connect, or you can add runs manually of course.

It’s all on the honor system. We trust you.

THE CAUSES

CAMBA’s services reach more than 60,000 individuals and families every year, including 10,000 young people, and brings critical programs to New Yorkers of all backgrounds.  Your support helps prevent families from being evicted from their home, helps break the generational cycle of poverty by assisting high school students to become the first in their family to attend college and brings literacy classes, legal services and job training programs to immigrants and low-income adults.  These are just a few of CAMBA’s 160 programs. With your help, we can make a stronger New York City!

The Coalition for the Homeless is the nation’s oldest advocacy and direct service organization helping homeless men, women and children. We believe that affordable housing, sufficient food and the chance to work for a living wage are fundamental rights in a civilized society.

Every day, our 11 frontline programs help more than 3,500 men, women and children survive immediate crises and put them on the path to long-term stability

Family Promise helps families experiencing homelessness, and low-income families, achieve sustainable independence through a holistic, community-based response. Through highly individualized, person-centered, trauma-informed care, we provide a compassionate, comprehensive response to the crisis of family homelessness prevention services before families reach crisis, shelter and case management when they become homeless, and stabilization programs once they have secured housing, to ensure they remain independent. Our community of staff and volunteers are the driving force behind local solutions that impact and change the lives of families in need.

 

Founded in 1995, You Gotta Believe works to find permanent, loving homes for young adults, teens, and pre-teens in the foster care system before they age out and run the high risk of experiencing homelessness and other dire situations. You Gotta Believe's core services include working one on one with foster youth to connect them to family and to address trauma. You Gotta Believe also recruits, trains and certifies foster/adoptive parents.
