2020 Turkey Trot
The annual Bo Tkach Foundation Turkey Trot 5K Run/Walk, normally held on
Thanksgiving morning in Palmerton, has been canceled this year due
to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 virus.
The organization released a statement saying it just didn’t want to take the chance with all of the uncertainty to put 800 people in proximity to each other.
“The organization regrets the decision and is looking forward to resuming the event in 2021.
The board thanks everyone for their support and understanding,”.
Over 878 runners/walkers registered in 2019 for the event, making it the largest race in the foundation’s history.
Proceeds from this race/walk benefit the Bo Tkach Foundation providing mental health counseling funding, scholarships, and educational presentations on Suicide Prevention, OCD, and depression.

A special Thank You to Bob Capasso and BRCTV13 for a great news story on the volunteers at our Turkey Trot.
Without our wonderful volunteers we couldn’t have made this day possible.
