For several years Thanksgiving weekend in Vancouver has included an iconic community event: the Turkey Trot on Granville Island, where our community comes together to walk or run and appreciate our beautiful city and our place in it. (Turkey hats optional.)
This year the event will look a little different.
However, what will stay the same is our commitment to our community. As part of the Turkey Trot, Rackets & Runners makes a monetary donation to the Vancouver Food Bank. And this year will be no exception. With the economic circumstances of the pandemic, there are even more who are struggling with the basics of living and providing for themselves and their families.
Community fundraisers like the Turkey Trot are more important than ever.
This Fall, please consider helping others by participating in the virtual Turkey Trot, with partial proceeds going to the Food Back, or a donation directly to your local Food Bank.
The upheaval of this year has only intensified our appreciation and gratitude for our customers, our community and where we live. Thank you for allowing us to help you stay moving, active and healthy.
