Feed the Turkey 5K – Virtual Turkey Trot

Whether you are running/walking in an official turkey trot or planning on getting out on your own, I urge you to check this out.
Feed the Turkey 5K

The Feed the Turkey 5K is a Virtual Turkey Trot being organized through Daily Mile. To participate you just donate $1, $5 or $10 via the Feed the Turkey site, all proceeds go to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Then you tweet or post to Facebook about your participation in the event.

Then you run/walk 3.1 miles on Thanksgiving.

That easy… Consider signing up!

Nobody asked me to post this, I just thought it sounded like a nice idea. I have not yet decided if I’m going to sign up for the local Thanksgiving Day race, but no matter what I’m planning on running at least a 5K that morning, so I’m in for this. It’s cheaper than an official race entry!


  1. NICE…I’ll be in Palm Desert for T-Day and the local Turkey trot is not particularly easy to get to, so I think I’ll map out a 5K and get the family to walk/run with me…

    I do Daily Mile and I somehow missed this. Thanks for the link!

  2. Can you do this even if you aren’t on Daily Mile. I have an account but got really tired of it….I love St. Judes though and would love to donate!

    • Yep, they have a link on there where they give you a “bib #” if you’re not using Daily Mile and then you put enter that after you’ve run your 5K to get your finisher certificate!

  3. So, did you do a 5K? And where did your family end up staying last night in LV? (You don’t have to say publicly, believe me, I understand. I’m so sorry they had such a bad experience!!
