This week on Spotlight On Maryland, Gina Crash was joined in studio by Suzanne Green, Executive Director of Community Development for the Y in Central Maryland and Robyn Talesnik, Senior Manager, Marketing Events and Outreach at LifeBridge Health, to talk about the Y Turkey Trot Charity 5K coming up Thanksgiving Morning and the Y Turkey Trot Food Drive November 13th-23rd.
The Y Turkey Trot Charity 5K will take place at six locations across central Maryland, (Arnold, Baltimore City, Bel Air, Ellicott City, Towson & Westminster) at 8:30 am Thanksgiving morning. There's also a virtual option available. Individuals can register at yturkeytrot.org. Turkey Trot proceeds support the Y Open Doors fund enabling access and inclusion in healthy Y programs for all. Proceeds help send children to camp, give seniors a chance to connect, provide meaningful mentoring opportunities to young people, distribute food to those who need it most in the community and provide families with fun, engaging fitness opportunities. More info is also available on the Y Turkey Trot Facebook page.
