Key Club, with the help of counselor Mrs. Jamie Jackson and other charitable organizations, will be hosting the first ever Turkey Trot 2.5. The walk will take place on November 23, Thanksgiving Day, and will start around 10 a.m. That morning, people from all over the Glen Allen and Richmond community will come together and give back to the children in our area.
“The Deep Run Turkey Trot presents a great opportunity for the people in our community to come together for a great cause, have fun, and get exercise in the process,” senior Jason Lee, vice president of Key Club, said.
Key Club is working with the Cameron Gallagher Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to being a positive force that raises awareness for teenage depression and anxiety.
Another non-profit group that is joining Key Club in organizing this event is Mustaches 4 Kids, or M4K, a volunteer-run organization that raises money for local children’s charities. Both organizations that Key Club is working with are dedicated to children. Mrs. Jackson is also helping Key Club make this event a success. Her husband, a devoted member of M4K, and she have done an extraordinary amount for the walk.
In order to participate in the Turkey Trot 2.5, the individual will need to register on the website. The registration fee is $20 and free for kids under the age of 10.
“I would like to bring the community together for a great charitable cause,” senior Zach Garcia, Key Club president, said.
Key Club is expecting a big turnout with children and adults of all ages. They hope to raise a lot of money for the local charities that they are benefitting. They would like to see this worthwhile event continue next year.
