2017 Turkey Day 5K Donates To Timber Drive Elementary School PTA
January 04, 2018
The first annual Turkey Day 5K held at White Deer Park on Thanksgiving morning was an overwhelming success! Over 500 people (many in costume) and 100+ dogs enjoyed the crisp cool fall morning running, walking or just strolling the 5K course through White Deer and Lake Benson Parks. Timber Drive Elementary School PTA had the most online registration mentions and The TeddyRox Foundation awarded them ten percent of online registration fees...$992.72! All other proceeds from the race will be used to help North Carolina animal shelters and rescues with life saving resources to ensure more homeless pets find the homes, care and love they deserve. The 2nd Annual Turkey Day 5K promises to be bigger and just as much fun. Mark your calendars and save the date...Thursday, November 22, 2018!
