In 2017, the Turkey Trot raised over $23,000– funding 10% of the Food Bank’s total annual operating budget. In just our second year we more than doubled our donations and this year we hope to build further upon that success.
Now in its third year, Turkey Trot has become a highly visible event in Montlake, Capitol Hill, Central District, Madison Park, Downtown Seattle, and other neighborhoods throughout Seattle. Over 800 runners participated last year from zip codes across the city. Turkey Trot marketing reaches thousands more and is a great way for your business to get exposure while doing good.
