Neighborhood Turkey Trot brings families together after Thanksgiving

Posted

Oakdale Civic president, Dave Chan, hosted his third annual, albeit informal, Turkey Trot at his home in the Idle Hour community.

Chan began the tradition as a “friendly, neighborhood get-together” to include a run/walk throughout the Idle Hour area with adult beverages, bagels, and snacks at the conclusion of the mini-5K.

Nearly two-dozen people come each year. Held this past Friday, Nov. 24, the Turkey Trot included a toy donation.

The “Run Your Turkey Off” event had over 30 participants, who donated over 50 toys to the Sayville Running Company for the John Theissen Children’s Foundation.
