The 2021 Race will be held in memory of George Devine who was a long time supporter of Family of New Paltz

Each year the Turkey Trot is traditionally run on Thanksgiving morning.  Due to gathering restrictions because of COVID-19, this year’s event can be done when and wherever you would like.  This is our largest fundraiser every year and we want your help to make this a fun event despite not being able to gather on Thanksgiving Day.  

When posting photos to social media, please use the hashtag #newpaltzturkeytrot so we can see all of your faces!  The funds raised during this event help us with our food pantry and client costs.

Family of New Paltz is a crisis intervention center located in the heart of New Paltz since 1975. Family provides a myriad of services, including a 24 hour hotline and new textline, food pantry, free clothing store, counseling, support groups and multiple shelters for adults, adolescents and victims of domestic violence.
