2020 CEA/Johanna Foods Turkey Trot Virtual Challenge
November 26, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am$32.50
The CEA Turkey Trot is celebrating the 28th anniversary of this Thanksgiving Classic this year in an unusual way, to match the unusual year we have all been having. With the unwelcome arrival of COVID-19, we are taking the Turkey Trot on the road–all roads–and creating the Turkey Trot Experience. We invite everybody to join us as we celebrate the 28th Annual Turkey Trot as part of a Virtual Challenge event.
Each year thousands of proud Turkey Trotters have gathered in Flemington to run and walk up an appetite for the Thanksgiving holiday festivities while helping raise awareness and much-needed funds for CEA’s employment programs that benefit hundreds of individuals with disabilities each year. Since 1993, over 89,000 people have participated in the events. This year we invite you to continue this holiday tradition, with friends and family members, and join the Turkey Trot Virtual Challenge. Flight One will depart from eight locations on October 12, 2020 and will give participants 45 days of online fun to record their times and distances as they travel (the distance) from as far away as Plymouth, MA or Williamsburg, VA to as close as Morristown, NJ or Philadelphia, PA or one of several other points along the way to Flemington, all associated with our Colonial and Revolutionary past. Flight Two, for the faster “fliers” will depart all starting towns on November 1, 2020. The object is for everyone to Flock to Flemington and enjoy a virtual Thanksgiving together this year in anticipation of returning to the streets and running or walking as a group once again very soon.
The CEA/Johanna Foods Turkey Trot is the largest such event in NJ. Together we can make it the largest in historic America and help people with disabilities who have been particularly hard hit by job and opportunity losses in the pandemic crisis find new community employment opportunities in 2021. On behalf of those we serve, Thanks, and Happy Thanksgiving Season.
