Presented by Fred Meyer and supported by a host of other local businesses, Hopelink’s annual Turkey Trot helps provide emergency services and holiday assistance to low-income families in east and north King County during the winter months. Families in poverty struggle year-round, but in winter they face added financial pressure from such things as higher home heating costs and providing their children with warm clothing and visits to the doctor if they get sick.

 

The registration fee includes a Hopelink Turkey Trot tech shirt and an entry into a drawing for a variety of prizes – including an overnight stay at Kirkland’s Woodmark Hotel and Sunday brunch for two at Anthony’s HomePort.
