Don’t miss the 24th annual Thanksgiving Turkey Trot


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOTV) – Get moving on Thanksgiving morning with the annual Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot! This is a family-friendly event for people of all ages and skill levels, a great healthy activity before indulging.

Blue Care Network of Michigan is once again partnering with Grand Rapids Public Schools for the 24th annual Turkey Trot on Nov. 24. The walk/run is open to all ages, and online registration is now open. 

Participants can run or walk the 5K (starting at 8 a.m.) or children can participate for free in the Mini-Trot which starts following the 5K race (about 8:40 a.m.). The event starts and finishes at Van Andel Arena.
Proceeds allow the Grand Rapids Public School district to fund the cost of interscholastic athletics to students in Kindergarten through 12th grade. Last year, 2,400 people took part, raising $50,000. This year, more than 2,000 have already registered so organizers hope to break last year’s record.
