Give NCW Turkey Trot, presented by Wenatchee Valley Medical Group, is a great way to start your holiday season with a fun and fit jaunt in Wenatchee. The event features timed 5K and 10K races and an untimed, free 1K run for kids. All are held on the Apple Capital Loop Trail along the Wenatchee riverfront.
This new family friendly event also kicks off the annual Give NCW campaign held by the Community Foundation NCW. The fundraising campaign runs from Thanksgiving Day through Dec. 31 and supports nonprofit organizations in NCW. Race proceeds will be shared equally among the nonprofit organizations that participate in the campaign.
The “Best Dressed Individual” will receive $500 from the Community Foundation to give to a nonprofit of their choice, and the “Best Dressed Group” will receive $1,000 from the Community Foundation to give to a nonprofit of their choice.
