About This Activity

Start off your Thanksgiving and with an invigorating 5K, 1 mile fun walk/run or kids’ dash in Laveen! This 5K (3.1 mile) run/walk is GREAT because it is a timed (with running chip) event for experienced runners but also developed for those who have NEVER run before or who choose to walk. Come join us and celebrate something that we can truly be thankful for: YOUR HEALTH!

Riverbend Prep Academy has joined with the Laveen Community Council to bring back the Laveen Turkey Trot & Kids’ Dash.  Their common goal to bring Laveen closer together and support the community to get healthy and active makes this a perfect partnership.  Proceed from this event will be going to the Laveen Community Council and Riverbend Prep Academy’s Gym project. 

Riverbend Prep Academy is a small (K-7) public, charter school located in Laveen.  Riverbend’s mission is not only to develop life-long learners who are prepared to contribute purposefully to society; but also to be a school that contributes to the value and well-being of its community.  The Riverbend Gym Project is a collective effort to provide an updated sports facility for students attending Riverbend and the community at-large. 

The Laveen Community Council is dedicated to the community of Laveen and its surrounding areas.  They are a 100% volunteer-based organization and all money earned helps to fund youth programs, create a connected community, and build neighborhoods of which we can all be proud.

The Turkey Trot will begin and end on the track at Cesar Chavez High School Stadium.  The route will wind through Cesar Chavez Park and will enjoy beautiful views.  The 1 mile run will also begin and end on the track.  The Free Kids’ Dash will be located on the football field in the middle of the track and while it is free, all parents must register their child beginning at 7:00AM on November 27, 2014.
