Putting the Giving in Thanksgiving

presented by ProMedica

The annual Dave’s Turkey Chase 5K, presented by ProMedica is the ideal Thanksgiving day family fun run/walk. With media sponsor WTOL 11 in downtown Toledo, the event also includes a one mile walk, a kids run, and a virtual option -- all to benefit Cherry Street Mission Ministries.

The event starts on Summit St. at WTOL 11, heads passed 5/3 Field, onto Huron St. passing by the Huntington Center and continues across Cherry St, then back onto Summit St. to the finish along the Maumee River behind WTOL 11 studios.
