Seattle Turkey Trot
The Seattle Turkey Trot was formed in 2007 by 3 local Seattlites who wanted to run on Thanksgiving morning in an attempt to counteract the large quantities of food that would be consumed later in the day. They invited their friends, and 30 people showed up to run that inaugural year. The next year, 200 people showed up, and the extra money raised was donated to the Ballard Food Bank. Since then the Ballard Food Bank has been instrumental in organizing and handling the yearly run, and all proceeds raised go directly to the Food Bank to help them provide food for those in need in the Seattle area.
We thank you for coming out each year to share your Thanksgiving morning with us, and for your generous donations to help those who need a little extra to keep their families healthy and happy.
