A great time for an even greater cause is back for its 12th year! The Turkeyfoot Trot 5K is sure to be a good time.St. Vincent de Paul in Northern Kentucky will host the 5k Run/Walk on Saturday, November 23, at 9 a.m. at Thomas More University. 

This family-friendly event will include many activities for both children and adults such as the headliner 5K race/walk with chip timing, a children’s fun run, many awesome door prizes and delicious food after the race from Chick-fil-A, Izzy’s, Salvadore’s Pizzeria and more. 

This event is great for cross-country runners and those who are training for the Thanksgiving Day race.

John Lomax, anchor of Good Morning Cincinnati on WKRC/Channel 12, will emcee the event and there will even be a special appearance from Santa.
“We are excited to partner with St. Vincent de Paul again. The work that they do is inspiring and we love to support a great cause,” commented Corey Sidebottom, Senior Vice President at Commonwealth Bank & Trust Company.

Event sponsors include St. Elizabeth Physicians, Trivaco, Thomas More University, and Tri-State Running Company.

“The Turkeyfoot Trot is a fun and easy way for our community to give back to our neighbors in need. As a runner myself, I look forward to participating every year,” remarked Karen Zengel, Executive Director at St. Vincent de Paul. Zengel is eager to participate in the 5K for her 4th year in a row!
All proceeds support St. Vincent de Paul programs in Northern Kentucky that bring hope and provide emergency assistance to those struggling to make ends meet. Last year SVDP raised $20,000 for the less fortunate in our community. The depth of need seems to be growing in our community, so they hope to be able to raise even more this year.
Pre-registration is now available online here through Thursday, November 21st.

Pre-registration fees for the 5K are $25 for adults and $20 for children 14 years or younger. T-shirts sold separately for $10 each while supply lasts.
