Meanwhile, Five Acres in Altadena continues its Turkey Trot virtual race through Nov. 25 to raise money and bring safety, well-being and permanency to children and families across six counties.
Traditionally, a Turkey Trot usually takes place on Thanksgiving morning, when participants walk, run, bike or trot together before sitting down for their Thanksgiving meals. With the virtual race, people don’t have to wait until the day of Thanksgiving to participate in the traditional Turkey Trot.
“It’s the same as a regular Turkey Trot, but due to the COVID-19 crisis, there is no set location and does not have to be on Thanksgiving, unless that’s what you want! It can be indoors or outdoors,” according to the event page.
Registration starts at $25 for one trotter, $45 for two trotters, and a special team price of $90 for groups of four. A race package will also be mailed out to participants after registration.
Donations and a portion of the registration fee will go to supporting Five Acres’ Permanency Campaign, a campaign for securing permanent homes for children in foster care.
An Altadena-based nonprofit that provides assistance for children and families in crisis, Five Acres provides foster care, adoption, deaf services, therapeutic residential care services for foster youth and community-based mental or behavioral health programs.
Since the Turkey Trot is virtual this year, they are encouraging participants to upload “trotting photos” to the Five Acres Turkey Trot 2022 page by tagging @fiveacresorg and using #5ATurkeyTrot2022 on Facebook and Instagram.
