Are you ready to TROT?  For their good deed, Participants at the IRIS Turkey Trot are granted permission by our mascot "Trot" to have an extra serving of potatoes and a second piece of pie at their Thanksgiving meal. Come join us, help someone else, have some fun, see your friends, and feel good about Giving on Thanksgiving Day!  


All proceeds from this race will benefit Infants Remembered In Silence, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to offering parents, families, friends and professionals support, education and resources on the death of a child. Funds will be used to provide bereavement support to families who have had a child die in early pregnancy (ectopic pregnancy, molar pregnancy, miscarriage, etc.) or from stillbirth, neo-natal death, birth defects, illness, accident, sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), and all other types of infants and early childhood death.


Everyone is encouraged participate in the Turkey Trot either by running, walking, volunteering, or donating!


Youbetcha! (that would be a "Yes" for you non-Minnesotans) - the IRIS Turkey Trot will be held if it's raining, cold, icky, snowing, sleeting, blowing, you know... if it's winter. Unless Anderson Race Management has to change it because of a "real" blizzard.
