2ND ANNUAL TURKEY TROT FAMILY FUN RUN & WALK

GET HUFFIN' BEFORE YOUR STUFFIN'!

The Lummi Island Foundation for Education (LIFE) continues our family fun run tradition with our Second Annual Turkey Trot (formerly RUN4LIFE for four years running)!

The 5.8K (3.6 mile) Turkey Trot will start at 9am, rain or shine, and begin and end at the Beach Store Cafe on Lummi Island (2200 N. Nugent Rd.). Pop your turkey in the oven, lace up your sneakers, and head out with friends and family for fresh air and exercise. You'll probably be back home to baste the turkey by 10 or 10:30am!

We'll have the same homemade pies you've come to love -- Apple Crumble, Pumpkin, and Maple Pecan, all with gluten-free options. Pies are a $25 suggested donation, and can be picked up at the Beach Store Cafe between 8:30am and noon on Thanksgiving Day. Click HERE for more details.
