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!

Fundraising: Where do I Start?

Three weeks from now we will be celebrating together Thanksgiving morning as we all not only reach our physical goal of completing a 5K, but an altruistic one of meeting our fundraising goal.

Runners and walkers of the Y Turkey Trot Charity 5K are encouraged to raise $100 to help more children in Central Maryland. Asking 10 friends for $10 can change the life of a child, how easy is that?

To read more about the cause please see this page.

There are two options for starting your fundraising page:

  1. Register to walk or run here. When you receive your confirmation email there will be a "Complete Your Registration" button at the bottom, click that to set up your page!
  2. If you prefer not to run or walk Thanksgiving morning you can still help put more "thanks" and "giving" into Thanksgiving by becoming a fundraiser. Go here and click either "Register as an Individual", "Create a Team" or "Join a Team" and then select "Fundraiser". (There is no fee). When you receive your confirmation email, click on the "Complete Your Registration" button at the bottom.
Once your page is set up you can:
Go ahead and try it. Ask ten people for $10 and see how easy it is to help.
