Okay – so you are traveling to your family, and spending the weekend, and are dreading the fact that you might not be able to exercise for a few days! Not the case! Make the most of your weekend, as Michael Conlon has created the Annual New Rochelle Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot Race. It is a wonderful and fun way in which to start the day – exercising and also giving to so many worthwhile charities at the same time. All of the proceeds go to local charities. This years’ charities are “My Brothers Keeper” ( Jared Rice was on hand to say a few words too), Boys and Girls Clubs of New Rochelle, Hope Community Services New Rochelle , The Fuller Center for Housing, The New Rochelle Campership Fund, Boys and Girl Scouts of New Rochelle and the William B. Ward P.T.A. Where else will you encounter so many people dressed up as turkeys, (Yeti man was there too), and simply making it fun for all! There was hot chocolate, apple cider donuts compliments of DeCiccio & Sons), T-shirts, mugs and glasses to purchase (still time to purchase – just contact Michael Conlon) .

2019 marks the fourth annual race, and each year the number of participants is growing! Nearly 1500 registrants this year, and since it is the ONLY Thanksgiving Day race in the area, there were participants from Stony Point Long Island and beyond!
It was such a fun morning. The National Anthem was sung. SO many wonderful volunteers.
