Virtual Announcement

In an effort to protect public health given the rise in the highly contagious Delta variant, the Silicon Valley Leadership Group Foundation today announced the 2021 Applied Materials Silicon Valley Turkey Trot will be an entirely virtual event. Given the mission of the Turkey Trot to aid vulnerable communities in Silicon Valley, we have elected to prioritize public health while still maintaining the community-building aspect of the event through a shared virtual experience.

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.



All proceeds from the Silicon Valley Turkey Trot “provide health, hope, and a home” and directly benefit the following charitable organizations.
