Oceanside CA— The City of Oceanside Parks and Recreation Division is happy to announce that Kathy Kinane’s Pacific Marine Credit Union Turkey Trot received an award from the California Parks and Recreation Society (District 12) for celebrating their 10th Year Anniversary in Oceanside, yesterday in Encinitas.
In addition to the Turkey Trot becoming an annual family fun tradition, the Turkey Trot organization has a 501c3 non-profit group attached to it called the “Move Your Feet Before You Eat Foundation.” This organization helps schools and local organizations raise tens of thousands of dollars annually and helps promote healthy eating and activities.
The Turkey Trot has grown from 2,000 athletes to 10,000 participants, some dress in Thanksgiving themed costumes. Parks and Recreation and the Turkey Trot encourage health and wellness all year long.
