Welcome to the Official Site of The Y in Central Maryland Turkey Trot Charity 5K! We are excited to have you join us for this Thanksgiving morning tradition.

Adults, children and families from across the region come together to not only run (or walk, jog, stroll), but to raise funds so that children living in poverty in Central Maryland have access to Y programs that will forever shape their lives.

Thank you for being part of something good on Thanksgiving Morning!

Let’s Get Together: Team Fundraising

We are excited that so many of you have started fundraising!
Some have reached out looking to form teams and we thought we should commit a blog post to this process. The Y Turkey Trot Charity 5K is a family and friend event, so you are encouraged to get everyone in your life involved and celebrate the morning together. Fundraising together will put even more “thanks” and “giving” into this Thanksgiving!

Creating a team through our easy-to-use fundraising site, just takes a few clicks.
  • After you create your personal fundraising page by going here and clicking on the red “Become a Fundraiser” button on the right-hand side of the page, you are ready to create a team
  • Go to your personal fundraising page. On the right hand side of the page, in the middle you will see a big green button that says “Create or Join Team” - click that.
  • You will be asked if you want to create a team or join an existing team. Select “Create Team”
  • Just fill in the blanks, one of which is a team name. Let your creativity shine!
  • That's it!
You can personalize your team page with photos, craft your own message and invite others to join your team.

Happy fundraising!
