Thank You & Happy Thanksgiving!
Hello Turkey Trotters!
We hope this email finds you reveling in the joy of your finish at this year’s Davis Turkey Trot. Thank you for supporting the event and helping us raise money for our event charities, Cancer Champions and the Yolo County SPCA.
We want to extend a HUGE thank you to the hundreds of volunteers that helped make this event possible, plus all of our sponsors and partners, including AMR, the City of Davis and City of Davis Police Department, CHP, Facchino Photography, the amazing pace group leaders from the Golden Valley Harriers, our Emcees, and finally the residents that live around the start/finish line or along the race route.
A message from Cancer Champions:
On behalf of Cancer Champions, thank you to A Change of Pace for the opportunity to present the first-ever Cancer Survivors Division. We heard from many people that they came out in spite of the wet weather because they wanted to be a part of this special cancer community, who always show up for each other. The stories we heard from survivors and their families were truly remarkable: running a half marathon despite not having a stomach thanks to cancer; running as a family because they cherish every day together; running in honor of loved ones lost to cancer, an all-too-familiar account. Ultimately, this cancer community showed up, and that’s what matters – not a finish time, not a first-place medal. Thank you!
