Turkey Trot that is!

TurekyTrot

I’m sorry. I don’t mean to remind everyone that Thanksgiving is sneaking up on us but hey… THANKSGIVING IS SNEAKING UP ON US!

I know, too fast. Way too fast.

Anyway, I thought I’d take a minute to give an updated on my first ever Virtual Turkey Trot and Fundraiser for my niece Judy. As of today we’ve raised $3,635 of the $13,000 needed!

I’ve been getting a few questions about the trot and the answer is, no, you don’t have to run!

My goal (in addition to the the fundraising) is to inspire you to do something active this Thanksgiving. If you aren’t ready to run, then walk. If you’d rather ride, pull out the bikes. Too cold for you outside? Fire up the treadmill. Have lots of kids to entertain? Grab a football and get a game in while the bird is in the oven.

The point is to get up and get moving. Do something new and active. Start a new family tradition!

To participate, all I ask of for a $25 donation to Judy’s 4 Paws for Ability campaign. Donate $50 and be entered to win one of these fabulous prizes!

  • Kindle Fire HDX 7″, HDX Display, Wi-Fi, 16 GB.
  • 3 prize packs that will include NEW Mini Babybel Mozzarella style, Light, Original and White Cheddar.
  • 5 Vitalicious cases with your choice of their top-seller VitaTops or VitaCakes. 

I’m donating the Kindles but I have to thank both The Laughing Cow and Vitalicious for supporting me and this effort. I’m so grateful to work with these great companies!

So who’s in? Who’s ready? Click here to donateI’m looking forward to getting the family out and about and I plan to snap lots of photos of our turkey trot excursion.  If you do participate, shoot me a photo on Twitter, tag me on Facebook or Instagram. I’d love to see everyone trotting away!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Roni, I signed up after you original post. I am going to try and run/walk outside Thanksgiving morning. I am not an outside runner so I have been working on it! If not, I will pull out an exercise video and my weights and get in a good workout early. Thanks for the inspiration1

    Roni, I wondered if a DietBet would help with the fund raising?
