On Thanksgiving morning, approximately 300 children will toe the starting line at the Long Island City YMCA. Kids ages 2-17 will race 100 to 1000 meters to kick off their Turkey Day. The 7th Annual Kid’s Turkey Trot is a family event designed to celebrate healthy living, fun, and our diverse community. The event expects to raise over $3,000 for the YMCA’s Annual Campaign which ensures that no child or family is turned away from life-enhancing YMCA programs because of the inability to pay.
Activities will include a mini Dance class, warm-up and stretch, pictures with the Turkey, and a post-race dance and awards celebration. Trophies and medals will be awarded to boys and girls across the age groups. The YMCA of Greater New York is a community service organization which promotes positive values with focuses on Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility.
