Virginia Run Turkey Trot

Centreville Presbyterian Church has assisted in hosting the Virginia Run Turkey Trot each Thanksgiving morning for over 15 years!

We pray you can be a part of this awesome outreach to our neighbors.

 

What is the Turkey Trot?

The Virginia Run Turkey Trot was founded by Virginia Run residents to promote health, community spirit and raise money for a charitable cause. The race proceeds went to the Red Cross in 1989 and Western Fairfax Christian ministries in 1990 and 1991.

In 1992, a Virginia Run neighbor and friend, Gail Kurkjian, was diagnosed with breast cancer. Virginia Run wanted to do something for her, and she asked us to donate the money to Life with Cancer (LWC), the organization that was helping her and her family (3 young girls) cope with Gail’s cancer. From this, Virginia Run began working with  Life with Cancer and formed a lasting relationship.

Virginia Run Turkey Trot has donated over $1 million to Life with Cancer® (http://www.lifewithcancer.org/). Each year we have over  4,400 participants. The race would not be possible without our community volunteers, generous sponsors, and loyal participants.

Why are we involved?

God calls us to be in the community. This is an awesome way to show God’s love to our neighbors of CPC.

What is exactly the CPC volunteers responsibility?

Once the race is about to begin, we set up the buffet of food and water bottles for racers as they return. As folks come in from race we help pass out and keep the buffet running smoothly.

What Time do we begin/ End?

7:45am – 9:00am

Where do we meet?

Park at the CPC parking lot and walk to the community center down the path by God/s Garden then turn right. Meet at front steps of the Virginia Run community center.

Sign up today to start your Thanksgiving morning reaching out to our community!
