Every year thousands come together in downtown Lynchburg to celebrate Thanksgiving and give back to a local non profit, HumanKind.

HumanKind's annual Turkey Trot, sponsored by Wells Fargo, helps children, adults and families succeed. Proceeds from this event benefit people served by HumanKind, formerly Presbyterian Homes & Family Services and the Family Alliance in five program areas:

  • Residential Care
  • Early Childhood Development
  • Mental Health Services
  • Economic Empowerment
  • Safe and Healthy Living

It's only through your support and participation in events like the Turkey Trot that together we are able to impact thousands of lives in our community each year. Thank you for being a part of it!

Runners, walkers and children are all welcome. Your Turkey Trot registration guarantees you a spot at the start line and finisher medal. T-shirts are guaranteed to those participants that registered on or before October 31, 2015.
