Help! We Need Some Turkeys. Help! Not Just Any Turkeys

Tue November 17 - Wed November 25, 2020 Sayville, NY 11782 US

Virtual Fun Run - Any Distance

$0 Registration ends November 25, 2020 at 11:59pm EST

When we were younger, not much younger than today
We had a turkey drive pub run before Thanksgiving Day
But now those days are gone, COVID ruined our event
Yet that shelter still needs 76 turkeys sent

Help us if you can, we're feeling down
And because of COVID you can't bring turkeys 'round
Help us use our feet to cover ground
Won't you please, please help us?

And now our drive has changed in oh so many ways
Your run can happen anywhere on any day
But even though you can't bring turkeys to the store
You can still pitch in like you always have before

Help us if you can, send a few bucks
A pandemic shouldn't mean those families are out of luck
With your money we'll fill up our delivery truck
Won't you please, please help us
Help Us, Help Suffolk!

Virtual Turkey Drive Fun Run

This is a free event with no awards or giveaways, but please donate any amount that you can to help us with our goal to feed all of the families at the Help Suffolk homeless shelter this Thanksgiving.  We'll take the money that you donate, buy turkeys at local grocery stores, and deliver them to the shelter ahead of Thanksgiving day.  If any extra money is collected it will go towards buying sides for the dinners, or get donated to a local food pantry. 

In the past, we've had fun runs that were anywhere from 3 to 7 miles, and finished with a pint at a local pub.  In that spirit, please complete any distance you choose, and feel free to celebrate after, on your own, with your beverage of choice.
