Join Us at the Turkey Trot and Make a Difference!

Come out Thanksgiving morning and join us for the 10th Annual Morris Township 5K Turkey Trot and 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk. We love this event which both fights hunger and promotes literacy.

For the past few years, Dixon Energy has been a Course Sponsor (so look for us on your race day tee shirt) because this event helps two very important causes.

Did you know? There are currently 32 million adults in the U.S. that can’t read. In addition, 1 in 6 people will face hunger at some point in their lives. Get sponsors to back you and your run can make a difference to others! The Turkey Trot raises enough money to provide 200 literacy students with one year of instruction, and supply 50 families of four with food for one year.

You can register online right now or in person starting at 7 AM on Thanksgiving morning. The 5K is at 8:30, the 1M Fun run/Walk is at 8:40, and the Kids Trot for 12 and under is as 9:15. Bring your whole family – this is a really fun outing. More than 3,000 people will be at the Ginty Field Complex to participate. Your sponsorship will benefit the Morris County Interfaith Food Pantry or the Literacy Volunteers of Morris County.

Quite a few members of our family will participate. We hope to see you there, too.
