What is a Turkey Trot?

A Turkey Trot is a family and friends reunion which usually takes place on Thanksgiving morning. Participants walk, run, bike or trot together. It’s a great way to limber up before a big Thanksgiving meal. It’s also a time to be thankful for what we have and donate to those who need support.

What is the Five Acres VIRTUAL 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. Five Acres Turkey Trot 2020 is going on NOW through November 26, THANKSGIVING DAY! Virtual also means that you can form a team with friends and family, while you are distanced. You aren’t limited to walking, running, biking or trotting. You can also treadmill, Peloton, push baby in a stroller through the neighborhood, do yoga or just relax indoors. You decide!

How is the money I’ve raised used? How about my donation? 

The money that you raise and the donation that you make to Five Acres is used to care for children and families in crisis, including foster care, adoption, deaf services, therapeutic residential care for foster youth, and community-based mental/behavioral health programs. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Five Acres is deemed an essential business, so we are continuing to serve our children, families, and community under the Safer at Home order. Your contribution will go towards maintaining the well-being of the Five Acres children and staff.
