11th Annual Kane Turkey Trot 5K for Thanksgiving
November 24 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
The 11th annual Kane Turkey Trot 5K will be held at 10:00 am on Thanksgiving morning. The event benefits the Kane Food Pantry.
The fun run and walk will start and finish on West Hemlock Ave. near the Kane School District offices. Event sponsors, Ned and Lynda Karger, have announced that in keeping with tradition this will again be a no registration fee, no t-shirt, no age groups, no trophies event. Times will be recorded. In lieu of an entry fee, participants are asked to bring a donation of cash or non-perishable food items for the Kane Area Food Pantry.
This year, unvaccinated runners and walkers are asked to wear a mask if congregating prior to the run. The Kargers appreciate all of the support for this event over the years. Records are not available for the first few years of the event but in just the past 6 years, the Kane Turkey Trot has raised $2050 and donated over 775 food items to the Kane Food Pantry.
This will be a “rain or shine” event with fun, fellowship and a chance to burn a few extra calories before the big Thanksgiving feast. Water and the traditional mimosas will be served after the event. Many local families and visitors from out of town have made the Kane Turkey Trot a Thanksgiving tradition in Kane.
