We presented PATH with a check in the amount of $10,515.24 on Sunday, during worship at First Presbyterian Church, York. In the 6 years of the Annual Running of the Turkeys, the race has raised in excess of $40,000.00 for PATH (People Attempting To Help) of York. Thank you for all of your support and making the 6th Annual Running of the Turkeys 5k a success and our BIGGEST year yet! As we prepare for the coldest days of winter know that PATH will have the money needed to keep the doors open for those in need in York.

The 5th Annual Running of the Turkeys is coming soon!!!

Mark your calendars folks! Thanksgiving morning, November 27th, 2014 will be the day of our 5th 5k charity running event held here in York, SC.

5ks have made a major move into our area with many local organizations hopping on the healthy bandwagon. We think it is great that so many people want to go out into their community and find fellowship through running, walking, jogging, etc.

So please, put us on your calendar so we can all give thanks for our healthy bodies, our happy families, and our wonderful community this Thanksgiving!

Gobble, Gobble!
