Join us Thanksgiving morning to take part in the 5th annual Turkey Run on November 24, 2014. This annual 5k run / 1 mile walk will benefit the Shriners Hospitals for Children. This great holiday tradition is for individuals and families that focuses on having fun, giving back to the less fortunate and enjoying a healthy way to start their holiday season. The race starts and finishes at the Northland Arboretum. The course is on the Paul Bunyan trail and surrounding city streets. Prizes will be awarded to the top male, top female, and top child racers.

What We Do ?
Children up to age 18 are eligible for care at Shriners Hospitals for Children®, if, in the opinion of our physicians, there is a reasonable possibility they can benefit from the specialized services available.
