Take the family on a Turkey Trot in MD Thanksgiving day

Start Thanksgiving day off right by running a Turkey Trot in Maryland with the family that benefits needy kids.

The Y of Central Maryland holds its annual Y Turkey Trot Charity 5K Thanksgiving morning to raise funds to support kids in poverty throughout Central Maryland. This year Turkey Trot locations will include Arnold, Baltimore, Bel Air, Ellicott City, Towson and Westminster. Here's a list of 2015 Turkey Trots and holiday fun runs.
