The Silicon Valley Turkey Trot
Start your Thanksgiving Day off on the right foot by joining friends, family and neighbors at the 6th annual Silicon Valley Turkey Trot. Choose an event to suit your taste -- a 5K walk, a 5K run, or a 10K run -- starting and ending at the Guadalupe River Park in downtown San Jose, California.
In addition to having fun and doing something healthy for yourself, you'll also be giving thanks by raising funds to help the Santa Clara Family Health Foundation, Second Harvest Food Bank and the Housing Trust of Santa Clara County. These charities provide families with "health, hope and a home." The Silicon Valley Turkey Trot has raised over $1 million dollars for these charities as of last year.
This photo was taken at the 2009 event. We'll be there again this year, and encourage you to come out, too. You'll enjoy an afternoon of sitting -- to watch a game or eat a feast -- after getting some good exercise and knowing you've made a difference in the lives of others.
