Countdown to 2023 Silicon Valley Turkey Trot
The Silicon Valley Turkey Trot would not be possible without the generous support of our partners.
A community’s success is meaningless as long as there are others in the community suffering, so our mission is to uplift and improve the quality of life for the less fortunate in Silicon Valley through the provision of funding for food, clothing, shelter, medical care, education and other basic necessities of life.
Impact to date:
Putting books into children’s hands
Since 2018, the Silicon Valley Turkey Trot has partnered with KPMG to donate over 6,500 books to local Title 1 schools through the Lacing up for Literacy Program. Let’s make a bigger impact this year!
OFFICIAL NEWS SPONSOR OF THE TURKEY TROT: The Mercury News
