Thursday, November 28, 2019, 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM

Bring your friends and family (even the family dog!) for a stroll, trot or run along El Paseo in Palm Desert on Thanksgiving Morning, all in the name of helping the less fortunate and feeding the hungry here in the Coachella Valley.

The 13th Annual Fortem Financial Thanksgiving Day 5K Benefiting Martha’s Village & Kitchen (MVK) is one of the largest 5K races in the Coachella Valley and serves as the annual community fundraiser for MVK. This festive and family-friendly event attracts a diverse turnout, ranging from competitive runners to work groups to families with children in strollers. Festivities include the complimentary Kids Zone (think face painting, crafts and games), the Festival Row (snap a selfie at the photo booth and pick up treats for canine participants) and the Beer Garden (registrants 21 or older can get 1 complimentary beer while supplies last).

Turkey trot attire is highly encouraged, so pick up a turkey hat and tutu when you register online or in person and join a few thousand of your neighbors on Thanksgiving Morning.

Visit https://marthasvillage5k.org/ to register for the race or sign up to volunteer. Participants who register early, by October 31st, get an “early turkey” discount!

Cost: $35 - Children (12 and under) $45 - Adults (13 and older) *Children under 5 NOT required to register to accompany parents.
