Thank you for joining us for our 29th Annual Turkey Trot! Since our early beginnings in 1979, the Y has been a force for good - leading and facilitating positive community impact. For 44 years, we have been growing, evolving, and enriching individuals and families of all ages in spirit, mind, and body. We are proud to serve the Upper Cumberland, and we are grateful for the support of our community.
Proceeds from this race benefit the YMCA’s Annual Giving Campaign which funds our many outreach programs like Learn to Swim, Go Pink Recovery Program, Cancer Recovery Program, and Open Doors. Our YMCA uses the funds from this campaign to make a meaningful, lasting impact right in your neighborhood. By supporting the YMCA, you ensure a brighter tomorrow for the men, women and children who call our region home.
