A Thanksgiving Day Tradition
While others were putting turkeys in the oven or nestled on the couch watching the Macy’s Day Parade, runners of all ages celebrated the spirit of giving at the 15th Annual Turkey Chase on Nov. 27, 2014!
Held on Thanksgiving morning, the Turkey Chase is our largest fundraiser and most buzzed about event every year! Turkey Chase proceeds help send deserving children and young adults to overnight and day camp programs here at Camp Letts.
The CourseThe 10K Race begins on the Camp Letts dirt and gravel driveway, though a trail onto the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center next door, a brief patch around a field and then a short stint on Muddy Creek Road and back again. The 5K fun run/walk is the length of the dirt and gravel driveway and back. Both courses can be run with a stroller.
We hope to see you in 2015! Click here if your company is interested in sponsoring the Turkey Chase race.
