The 2017 Clayton Homes Turkey Trot for Education was a huge success! The race included 1,061 runners and walkers. However, the students of Blount County need your help even more this year. With your help, we can make this year’s 2018 Turkey Trot for Education an even greater success. This event is held annually the Sunday before Thanksgiving at the Clayton Homes Corporate Office. The funds from this event provide Blount County Education Foundation with the funds needed to support the Mini-Grant program. Plans are being put into place and the pre-registration for the annual Turkey Trot for Education has begun. We need runners, race day volunteers, and sponsors. The students and our volunteers need your help. Time, money, and other gifts are all greatly appreciated. Please take some time today and consider what you can give to help our students in the Blount County School system.
To help sponsor this event, volunteer as a race day helper, or to offer other items or services, please contact us via email at:
