The 9th annual Tonka Turkey Trot 5K will take place on Thanksgiving morning at 8:30 AM. We need additional volunteers to help monitor the race course and make sure we provide all runners and walkers with a safe, enjoyable and healthy experience. It’s a great way for student-athletes to help the MTFCCA’s largest fund-raising event, get in volunteer hours and, on Thanksgiving Day, give back to the community that supports them.
