Tallahassee Turkey Trot Virtual 15K/10K/5K/1Mile

November 26-29, 2020 Tallahassee, FL 32301 US

The Kearney Center thanks everyone associated with the Turkey Trot for once again letting us partner with you in this great Tallahassee tradition. The Turkey Trot races have supported The Shelter, and now the Kearney Center, for over 25 years. Your contributions have helped us continue to better meet our mission of serving the homeless.

Our work with those who are homeless is rewarded when we see people’s lives transformed before our eyes daily. Folks who come to us desperate for food and shelter are fed and protected. In addition, our case management and supportive services have helped many find their own homes.

The Kearney Center:

  • *Provides 700 nutritious meals every day
  • *Provides overnight safety for an average of 375 people nightly
  • *Meets the basic health needs of 80 people every night

For over 25 years, our community has reflected a caring heart toward homeless people, many of whom are like many of us: regular folks who are a paycheck or a calamity away from needing extra help. While there are some homeless people whose situations seem chronic, most can be effectively encouraged and assisted back toward living safer, more stable and more comfortable lives.

In January 2018, the CESC (Connecting Everyone with Second Chances) Dental Office opened in the Kearney Center. The office provides no-cost dental care not only to Kearney Center residents but anyone in need. Find more information at www.cesctlh.org/dental

The Kearney Center continues to provide critical services to the people it serves and you help in making all this happen. Visit the Kearney Center at www.kearneycenter.org

We are so grateful for your continued support that helps us meet the demands of our community. Thank you, runners and supporters, for making us a part of your Thanksgiving Day tradition!
