  • Contest: Fundraising Event
  • What Should the Voters Know?: Over the course of 10 years, the Turkey Trot for Hope has become a family tradition in the Mobile area on Thanksgiving morning. On paper, the event is a 5k and less than a mile Gobble Wobble, but in person it is a festive and heart-warming way to start a holiday filled with thanks and giving.

    With an early start, both participants and volunteers are home and back to cooking, watching football, or prepping their Black Friday shopping list by 10am.

    This past year, we added a new aspect of fundraising and entertainment to the morning. "Turkey Drop" participants participated in online peer-to-peer fundraising and if they reached $1000 they were dunked in cold water at the event. We dunked a total of 8 people!

    This event netted over $60,000 last year for Camp Rap-A-Hope.
  • Name of Entry: Turkey Trot for Hope
  • Why Should You Vote for Me?: The Turkey Trot for Hope brings awareness and fundraising from all over the country as over 30 different states are represented due to people coming to town for the holiday.

    This event has really taken off in our area and many people participate simply because it is their family tradition on Thanksgiving morning, and as a bonus they get to learn more about Camp Rap-A-Hope!
