What an amazing Thanksgiving!

YOU are a change maker – and were part of a historic and record setting community that participated in the 2023 Lynchburg Turkey Trot In-Person and with a TWIST. Thank you for your participation and for stepping out on a holiday morning to prove that as a community we are STRONGER TOGETHER.

With your support and Thanksgiving meal donations, we were able to feed families in need—right when they needed help most — this Thanksgiving and will be able to provide wrap-around services to families across the region as they strive to build a better foundation for life. None of this could happen without you. Thank you.

Happy Thanksgiving and warm wishes for a wonderful holiday season! Stay well and be safe!

Before the big games, the big meal, the parades, and the pies, why not get in a little exercise? It’s an event the whole family will enjoy! If you’ve never participated before, we encourage you to join us this Thanksgiving and make it a family tradition!

You’ll also be giving “thanks” by helping individuals and families throughout our community! Proceeds from this race benefit the programs of HumanKind, which provide a broad range of services that foster the social, mental, and financial well-being of families and individuals. With a focus on empowering people of all backgrounds and abilities, HumanKind helps equip people to build better lives for themselves and their families. These programs serve thousands of people in Lynchburg and across Virginia each year!
