Two Rivers Ford once again invites families and their furry friends to participate in the fifth annual Turkey Trot to benefit New Leash on Life.
New Leash on Life Director Amy Haverstick said that 100 percent of the funds raised will help the no-kill shelter with daily operations, medical care and spay and neuter operations for all of the animals they take in.
Folks can choose to participate in the 1-mile Fun Run or the 5K race on the certified course in the Providence Marketplace community. Haverstick said pre-registration can be completed online. The cost is $20 for the Fun Run and $35 for the 5K. The price for those registering on the day of the race increases to $30 for the Fun Run and $45 for the 5K.
The race is open to walkers, runners, strollers and well-socialized, leashed dogs. The 1-Mile Fun Run begins on Thanksgiving Day at 8 a.m., followed by the 5K at 8:30 a.m.
Pre-registration will be open online through Sunday, Nov. 23. Go to turkeytrot5k.org.
