Five Acres Hosts Its Second-Ever Turkey Trot

Published on Nov 7, 2021

Los Angeles resident Aarti Patel participates in Five Acres’ first-ever Turkey Trot last year in November 2020 to raise money for the nonprofit organization.

Join Five Acres in their second-ever virtual race to raise money and bring safety, well-being and permanency to children and families across six counties. Five Acres is hosting a Turkey Trot virtual race from now through November 25.

This November, people don’t have to wait until the day of Thanksgiving to participate in the traditional Turkey Trot. Registering for the Five Acres Turkey Trot gives participants a chance to decide the location, the date and how they’d like to participate. Sign-ups are available now and registration starts at $25 for one trotter, $45 for two trotters, and a special team price of $90 for groups of four.

Every trotter will receive a Five Acres 2021 Racer’s Bib and a Kind Bar. Trotters participate individually or in teams by walking, biking, or running while wearing their Five Acres Racer’s Bib. The organization is encouraging trotters to take pictures while they trot, upload them to Instagram and Facebook, use the hashtag #5ATurkeyTrot2021, and tag @fiveacresorg to share the Turkey Trot experience with the Five Acres social community.

“The Five Acres Turkey Trot is a perfect way to get outside and do something with your family or spend self-care time in nature,” said Five Acres Chief Advancement Officer Jennifer Berger. “Now more than ever the children and families we serve are in need of major assistance and the Five Acres Turkey Trot is how you can help support our mission of strengthening children and families and empowering them within their communities.”

To date, the Five Acres Turkey Trot is still looking for sponsorship. If interested please contact Brandon Ito, Five Acres associate director of development, for additional information at (626) 390-8453.
