This year’s event is shaping up to be our best ever! With the help of our business community donors, this event raises thousands of dollars to help children in need from the Mount Vernon High School community. Our Turkey Trot combines the best for all levels of runners, professionally managed and timed with micro-chips, beautiful and fun course and the spirit of our Mount Vernon neighbors.  Prizes such as eReader/Tablet, frozen turkeys, gift cards are awarded to the top participants in every category.  Our children need your help, so run or walk, rain or shine.
