Before you sit down to plates full of turkey and stuffing, come out to the Little Falls Turkey Trot. The course is a challenging 5k through our wonderful Moreland Park and charming downtown brought to you by Rock City Runners and the YMCA.
The organizer of the event, Rob Richard said, “We’re excited to bring back the Turkey Trot for a second year. It’s a fun time for friends and family and gets you moving before you stuff your face at Thanksgiving dinner. We’d like to thank the YMCA for helping make this race possible and we’re very happy to be once again supporting Little Falls Community Outreach by donating 100% of the proceeds to the organization.”
Registration is $25, children under 16 run for $5. There will also be a fun and short Kids Run for the youngest runners.
The Fun Run starts at 8:00 AM November 28th and the 5k starts at 8:30 AM. Registration and race start will be at the Little Falls YMCA, 15 Jackson Street.
Your entry fee will help support Little Falls Community Outreach.
The Little Falls Community Outreach grew out of a community project organized by the First Presbyterian Church in the summer of 1992. With $400 in donations and the cooperation of the school district employees and church volunteers, 57 backpacks were purchased, filled with school supplies and basic hygiene items, and distributed to the children of Little Falls who had severe needs at the start of the fall semester, thus giving them a ‘fresh start’.
As work progressed on Project Fresh Start, it became apparent to those involved that with a broader-based community effort, more could be accomplished to meet the humanitarian needs of our city’s children and families. To that end, a meeting was held at the First Presbyterian Church in the spring of 1993 for the purpose of identifying the community needs and establishing an organization to address them. With $19,000 in support from churches, local businesses, and civic clubs, LFCO was founded using as it’s corporate motto the old African proverb: “It takes a whole community to raise a child.”
Fast forward 25 years later and we are still responding to community needs with five new programs in the last year. We have a budget of nearly $60,000 and seven part-time employees. We are grateful every day to serve the Little Falls and surrounding communities.
