Keeping the tradition: York YMCA set to host first virtual Turkey Trot Virtually for its 24th year this Thanksgiving Holiday
For the first time ever, the Annual York YMCA Turkey Trot will be held virtually to ensure the health and safety of all participants during the COVID-19 pandemic. November 26, 2020 (Thanksgiving) through Sunday November 29, 2020.
Take part by running or walking any 3.1-mile route, anytime, anywhere, during the event period.
“Despite the many things that have gone on this year, we are happy and thankful to be able to still provide our Annual Turkey Trot in a virtual setting. When runners participate in the Turkey Trot each year, proceeds go towards benefitting various health/wellness programs such as LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, Rock Steady Boxing, Diabetes Prevention, and more. – said by Karen Ruppert, Executive Director, York Branch YMCA.
