The Y in Central Maryland's Annual Thanksgiving Morning Turkey Trot Charity 5K is a family event that raises urgently needed funds to support children and families in Central Maryland. We have a total of seven 5k's across the region: Baltimore City, Arnold, Bel Air, Ellicott City, Towson, Westminister, and Perry Hall.

These families and children are living at or below the federal poverty level and cannot afford experiences available to many children including, a quality preschool education, summer camps and after-school activities that keep children safe and healthy.

The Y serves thousands of children and families in the region and each year the demand for financial aid for Y youth programs grows. With your generous support, we will be able to help those families throughout Central Maryland who depend on the Y to remove income as a barrier to opportunity for their children .

We have a variety of opportunities on Thanksgiving morning, ranging from the following:

  1. Volunteer Coordinator
  2. Set-up
