From turkey and dressing to sweet potatoes and pecan pie, wouldn’t it be nice to work that Thanksgiving dinner off before you take your first bite?
The Y’s 34th annual Turkey Trot features a 10K run, a 5K run/walk and a 1K Gobbler Trot for kids and families. Proceeds from the Fort Worth YMCA Turkey Trot benefit the scholarship/youth program of the Westside YMCA. Persons who wish to utilize the services of the Y but cannot afford them are given assistance based on their needs, allowing those who otherwise would not be able to participate.
