Pathfinder Services will hold the 15th annual Kids Kampus Turkey Trot 5K Run/1 Mile Walk on Thanksgiving morning, Nov. 28, at 8 a.m. Registration is now open and all proceeds go to Kids Kampus in support of the children and families served.

“The Turkey Trot has become a Thanksgiving tradition for so many families,” says Pathfinder Services President and CEO John Niederman. “We are so grateful to everyone involved because it really takes the entire community to make this a successful event.”

“We can’t think of a better way to kick off a day of giving thanks than to support this wonderful event,” says Britt Sather, owner of host sponsor McDonald’s of Huntington. “We gather together as a community to help our future generation get a great head start in life.”

Registration for the 15th Annual Kids Kampus Turkey Trot is available online at pathfinderser vices.org. The first 1,100 registrants receive a shirt and cinch bag. There is a cost for the event, with a discount for registering prior to the day of the event. In 2018, there were 1,104 participants and just over $30,000 was raised for Pathfinder Kids Kampus.
