Sign up today for the 2023 Thanks For Giving 4 Miler and Kids Dash that will take place this Thanksgiving in New Albany! Come out and join us for a fun kick off to Thanksgiving Day festivities! As always, there is no official race fee and 100% of our net proceeds go to help those in need.
We will be out on Thanksgiving morning collecting donations for those in need! We will be recognizing our amazing sponsors - and may even have some pies and giveaways for those who come out to donate!
Our goal has always been to feed as many families in Central Ohio as we can – and that has not changed! You can help! You can help by participating in our event, spreading the word on what we do, by making a donation. You decide on the donation and can feel great knowing that 100% of what you give will go directly to those in need.
Our race is all about family, giving back, and having fun. There is no official race fee. You can give as much or as little as you want. However – a $40 minimum donation is required in order to get our amazingly soft t-shirt.

If you cannot make it to early packet pickup on either of those dates, you can still pick up your packet on race morning at the race site, starting at 6:30 am.
