    Start Thanksgiving off on the right turkey leg and join us for the 1st Annual Run with the Turkeys Trot 5K & 10K walk/run. Before you eat your big meal get a little exercise with a few of you closest friends and neighbors. This is an event the whole family can enjoy and help others in the community. Make the run or walk a Family Tradition.

    We have teamed up with Community Storehouse to help benefit the kids in the Keller ISD and Northwest ISD by bringing non-perishable food items. Food insecurity affects 20% of the children in the Keller ISD and 25% in Northwest ISD. Please bring 2-3 non-perishable items race day.

  • Benefiting

    Community-Storehouse-LogoNewCommunity Storehouse, a children’s charity in Northwest Tarrant County that focuses on keeping children in the classroom while going through struggling times. Hunger prevention is a big area that Community Storehouse focuses on and is vital to proper growth and development of children. They have set up a food pantry to help make sure our kids don’t go hungry. Here is a list of items you can bring race morning: Granola Bar, Cereal Bars, Cheese Crackers, Fruit Snacks, Pretzels, Trail Mix, Dried Fruit, Beef Jerky, Pop Tats, Fruit Cups, Pudding Cups, and any other non-perishable child friendly snacks. It is hard to believe we have children hungry in our area but it is true and they need our help.
