Conceived in 2011, the Fort Lauderdale Turkey Trot, has grown from humble beginnings of a few hundred to thousands of ‘chip-timed’ walkers, joggers, and runners all gathered along A1A on Thanksgiving morning. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a first timer, experienced or seasoned, the 5k run is the perfect prelude to your holiday meal. Not only is the race a wonderful way to get ready for the eating that is to come, your contribution helps support two outstanding and local organizations; iTRACE Foundation, Inc. and Leadership Broward Foundation, Inc.
This year, you can make the meaning of Thanksgiving all the more fulfilling knowing that It Feels Good, To Do Good for your community.
Your contribution to the Fort Lauderdale Turkey Trot helps strengthen our community in large and small ways. Proceeds are invested locally in two organizations committed to developing leadership, inspiring community service, health and wellness. The generosity of individual donors, the public and private sectors and hundreds of active volunteers combine to make a difference in our communities’ lives.
