Turkey Trot OC 5K canceled due to the Tustin Hangar Fire

If you have already registered for this event, please check your email inbox for more information. 

Sadly, the 10th Annual Turkey Trot OC 5K is canceled due to the close proximity of the Tustin hangar fire to our Turkey Trot race course and out of concern for the health and safety of our Rescue Mission supporters.

You can still make a difference this Thanksgiving!

You came to this website to join hundreds of others in making a difference on Thanksgiving morning by helping us meet our collective goal of raising support for 50,000 meals.

Turkey Trot OC 5K is canceled, but hunger and homelessness is not. Please click here and make a $35 donation or more

With the struggling economy, more people are falling into homelessness and are in need of help. In fact, our Village of Hope campus that provides basic needs and comprehensive services to individuals and families is helping more people than ever before. And with schools closed due to the fire, we currently have 51 school-age kids on campus in remote learning and eating all three meals a day with their families. 

Your donation now will help provide 50,000 meals for hungry and homeless children and their families.

As a thank you, if you make a $35 or more donation by Monday, November 20 at 11:59pm,  you can still get your race swag! Stop by Village of Hope to pick up your Turkey Trot OC 5K T-shirt and participant medal, while supplies last.

Pick up your race swag on Tuesday, November 21, 3:30 - 6:30pm at Village of Hope, 1 Hope Drive, Tustin, 92782.

Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving!
