Description

Too stuffed to race? Make a difference and volunteer! Whether you're a dedicated runner or just someone who jogs from the couch to the fridge, the Turkey Day 5K in Minneapolis is fun for everyone!  And of course we make every effort to make this event just as amazing of an experience for our volunteers! Come alone or find a friend and register to volunteer at the event! It is the perfect way to start your Thanksgiving morning! 

Life Time Turkey Day 5K has joined forces with Second Harvest Heartland one of the nations largest food baks. Last year Turkey Day 5k participants donated 15,112 pounds This year we are hoping to collect 20,000!  You can also donate a $1 which can provide 3 meals. Life Time will be matching up to $20,000. More info and the link to donate below. Joins us in sporting our community this Thanksgiving!

Fulfillment of helping another individual accomplish their goal or dream
