Rotary hosts Turkey Trot Virtual Walk/Run for Nov. 22-28.

The Clayton Valley/Concord Sunrise Rotary Chapter invites all to its inaugural ”Turkey Trot” virtual run any day November 22-28 at the participant’s choice.
Runners will also choose their own course that is as distance accurate as possible to ensure accurate times. Courses should avoid major roads and other unsafe areas. A safer option such as a public high school track (if accessible) is recommended. Awards will be given out to the top 3 in each category of 5k and 10k age groups: 5-8, 9-12, 13-15, 16-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80-89, 90+, plus a Kids’ 400m Fun Run for ages 12 and under.
The event will rely on the honor system. Participants must track and submit their own times recorded to the hundredth second through the www.active.com portal.
Registration fee is $30. Kids fee is $20. T-Shirts and awards can be picked up locally or mailed if necessary.
The Clayton Valley/Concord Sunrise Rotary Chapter is comprised of only 38 members, all dedicated volunteers, who devote their time and talents for one single purpose: to help our fellow human beings who are less fortunate.
The club recently donated 68 cars to the residents of Paradise who suffered through the devastating fires. They also teamed up with another Rotary club to raise $50,000 enabling the local Food Bank to provide 100,000 meals for local residents.
While Covid-19 has impeded their fundraising efforts, they club has buckled down and developing creative ideas to raise funds to do more for the community.
