Thanksgiving Day Trot for Hunger

Looking for a way to help the hungry and homeless this Thanksgiving? Volunteers are needed for SOME’s 13th Annual Thanksgiving Day Trot for Hunger on Thursday, November 27th. We are seeking many volunteers, as we are expecting around 10,000 participants this year!

There are many great opportunities to help, including with packet pick-up, race day registration, bag check, and handing out water and fruit. We also need help packing up supplies and cleaning up after the race.
