Start Thanksgiving off on the right foot at the Applied materials "Silicon Valley Turkey Trot". Before the big games, the big meal, the parades and the pies, why not get in a little exercise with a few thousand neighbors? It's an event the whole family will enjoy! Many have made the "run" or "walk" a Thanksgiving tradition.
There are several events to choose from within the 5K and 10K runs and walks, along with a kids fun run. Elite runners, joggers, and walkers will enjoy the downtown San Jose course, which is flat, fast and slows through downtown neighborhoods and business areas.
You'll also be giving "thanks" by helping Healthier Kids Foundation Santa Clara County, Housing Trust Silicon Valley, Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties, Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Cruz County and The Health Trust. These charities provide families with their most basic needs for "health, hope, and a home." The "Silicon Valley Turkey Trot", founded and produced by the Silicon valley Leadership Group Foundation, is now in its 10th year and the total amount given to charity has exceeded $4 million.
