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!

2015 Y Turkey Trot Charity 5K Ambassadors

Energetic? Motivated? Love helping kids and making a difference in your community? Become a Y Turkey Trot Charity 5K Ambassador and spread the excitement about the event in your town! 

Sign up today by emailing TurkeyTrot@ymaryland.org.

In September you will receive a special welcome package in the mail, filled with all the information and goodies you need to send you off with smiles and know-how to recruit other runners/walkers and raise funds for children in need of financial assistance. Families are welcome to join in.

All Turkey Trot Ambassadors who meet their fundraising goal will receive a limited edition premium long-sleeved Turkey Trot Ambassador shirt and one-month of a family Y Membership for FREE!

Ambassadors will spread the word through five activities (choose which ones suit you!):
  • "speaking" at an event you have contact with about the Turkey Trot
  • manning a table for at least one hour in the Family Center Y of your choosing, to help people sign up for Turkey Trot and start their fundraising pages
  • walking for an hour or two with our Turkey Trot mascot at a local event
  • secure a sponsor for the event
  • call registered runners to welcome them to the event

You will also help change a child's life through fundraising. Ambassadors will create a fundraising page online and ask friends and family for donations. Your goal is $250, but we ask that you aim for much more!

To sign up to become an Ambassador please email turkeytrot@ymaryland.org. First 100 applicants accepted. Deadline to join: August 31st. Extended until September 8th!
