LITTLE BY LITTLE, A LITTLE BECOMES A LOT.
Welcome to the Gobbler 5k!
We are so glad you are here!
This event is a 5k run on Thanksgiving morning to raise money for local families in need! And we would love your support!
There are lots of different ways that you can help. Any purchase you make on this site for registration, purchasing merchandise or buying raffle tickets will go to the families in need. We have no paid employees of this charity, everything is completely volunteer so you know your money is all going to the recipient families.
We also take donations in the form of cash, check or Venmo donations that go directly to the families. Local businesses sponsor this event every year to help us raise as much as we can.
A family or multiple families are chosen each year to be the recipients of this cause. There are always so many people who need support and it is amazing to see our community rally around our own and help them get through cancer, disease and many other hardships.
Thank you for visiting! We hope you enjoy your stay!
