Our 2023 How I Thrive Contest Winners

"Running in the Turkey Trot is a message of gratitude to my community, my family, and myself! We all thrive when we come together and push ourselves to be better than last year. We all thrive when we set goals, crush them, and then celebrate over a huge Thanksgiving feast. The annual Turkey Trot is a wonderful opportunity to express our gratitude for each other while pushing ourselves forward!” - Jeanette R.

“Participating in the Silicon Valley Turkey Trot empowers me to thrive by embracing a healthy tradition with my daughters. Each year, the Turkey Trot boosts my physical well-being, ignites a sense of community, and sets a positive tone for the holiday season. As a senior, each mile I run signifies my ongoing commitment to an active lifestyle. The run also provides a unique way of connecting with others and a means to embrace gratitude. This event truly embodies the spirit of thriving through movement, camaraderie, community, and joyful celebration.” - Laurence E.
