Turkey Trot


WCEF Check Presentation to WCEF


The Walnut Creek Education Foundation K-12 (WCEF K-12) is excited to announce that on Friday, January 13, Walnut Creek Sports and Fitness (WCSF) presented a $30,000 check to the foundation as co-beneficiary of the 19th Annual Turkey Trot Thanksgiving Day 5k/10k and Kid’s Fun Run. PEAK foundation also received the same donation.

This year’s race registered 4,592 runners from 29 different states.  Runners ranged in age from 1 to 83.  Over 200 students, families and community members from all over Walnut Creek volunteered on the day of the race.

WCEF would like to extend a huge thank you from our school community to WCSF General Manager, Linda Hansen, Fitness Director, Tom Hart and Personal Training Director Bob Boos, for their dedication and commitment to this beloved and healthy Thanksgiving day tradition that generously gives back to our schools.

Thank you as well to all our families and community members who came out on that rainy morning last November to run or volunteer.  Participation in the Turkey Trot and all of WCEF’s fundraising events help provide the enriching and engaging learning environments our students need to prepare them for the demands of the 21st century.

We look forward to seeing you at the race next year!
