- Add a signature line to your emails that reads something like "I am running in the Y of Central Maryland's Turkey Trot Charity 5K this Thanksgiving. Will you help motivate me with a donation that will help disadvantaged youth in my community? Link to your fundraising page"
- Take a picture of you, your child, or your pet in a turkey costume and post it on Facebook, email, or Twitter asking people for a donation!
- Make a video on your phone asking for a donation and post it on Facebook or send it in an email to your friends and family. It is more powerful than a picture or just an email. You can use the story of the child above to illustrate the need.
- Offer to do something silly for a donation. "Donate to me and I will change my Facebook profile picture to something embarrassing or "I will run around the block in my Halloween costume (not on Halloween) if you support me.
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!
