Kaiser Permanente “How I Thrive” Contest

Kaiser Permanente’s Thrive Together mission enables people to discover different ways they can improve their lives through programs that emphasize great health care, staying active, eating healthy, living well and giving back. In being the official sponsor for the “How I Thrive” Contest, Kaiser Permanente is highlighting its Staying Active component in conjunction with the Silicon Valley Turkey Trot.

While registering, be sure to share with us how the Applied Materials Silicon Valley Turkey Trot makes you or your family “Thrive” in relation to health, wellness and community. In November, our team will go through each submission and pick the top two entries and each will receive a prize on race day.

Our 2018 “How I Thrive” Contest Top Two Entries


“The 2012 Turkey Trot was the first race I ever ran. I was celebrating finishing cancer treatments, proving to myself that I had beaten cancer. Since that race I have run 44 half marathons. Not too bad for an old lady.” – Joyce Warner-Manina


“When I run, anxiety is behind me. Stress is lifted, and in my past. Running is an escape, and an opportunity to be outdoors, to contemplate what truly matters. Although running is exercise, it benefits much more than the body.” – Ryan Tabor
