Annual New Canaan Turkey Trot

November 18, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm


Give thanks and make a difference at the New Canaan Turkey Trot on Sunday, November 18, at 11:30am. The 15th annual 5K run/walk begins and ends at Waveny Park on South Avenue in New Canaan. Proceeds from the race benefit The Open Door. The Open Door’s mission is to effectively address the causes and complexities of the homeless and working poor by providing shelter, food, clothing, case management services, treatment services, transitional planning for short- and long-term goals, subsidized housing, education, employment, and a path towards independence and success.

Organized by a team of New Canaan and Weston students, the event provides much-needed funds over the busy holiday season. This year’s event is co-chaired by Brielle Connelly and David Tamburri along with committee members Katie Libman, Caroline Pellegrino, Katherine Pellegrino, Zach Tamburri, Meghan Griffiths, Kaleigh Griffiths, Bailey Williams and Richard Hernandez.
