The Silicon Valley Turkey Trot: A Thanksgiving Tradition

There is no better way to kick- off your Thanksgiving than to get in a little exercise while benefiting local charities.

The 7th annual Applied Materials “Silicon Valley Turkey Trot” has raised more than $1.5 million for Second Harvest Food Bank, the Housing Trust of Santa Clara County Bank, and Santa Clara County Children’s Health Initiative. This year their goal is to raise an additional $500,000!

The day’s events include a costume contest, 10K Run, 10K Wheelchair, 5K Run/Walk, Elite Men and Women’s PA/USATF, Kid’s Fun Run, and Award Ceremony. And you’ll be done by noon!

If you can’t make this year’s Turkey Trot, you can still make a difference by making a donation.
