The Start
Rockland Road Runners presents
The 23rd Annual

Welcome to the 2014 Thanksgiving Day 5 Mile Turkey Trot!

Race proceeds benefit:
The Marisa Fund, helping kids with cancer and their families. A part of the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation at New York Medical Center in Valhalla, NY, the Marisa Fund provides funds for research to generate less toxic treatment protocols for children with cancer. It is our goal to cure the patient and kill the cancer. We also provide financial assistance for families when insurance is not enough. Every dollar raised goes to easing treatments, easing financial hardship and finding a cure for pediatric cancer.

The Turkey Trot also benefits local charitable organizations: People to People and the Rockland County Police Hispanic Society Scholarship Fund

You can help:
Join in the Thanksgiving spirit and bring your non-perishable food items for our annual food drive. All food collected will be distributed by "People to People" to assist needy families throughout Rockland County
