About This Activity

Welcome to the second annual Sparky's Turkey Trot!

Thanks to the tremendous support of our Dog Scout members, friends and family, Sparky's Turkey Trot is now an annual event. In 2015 we raised over $960 for Dog Scouts of America. Our goal for 2016 is to raise over $1500.

This is a virtual race to fundraise for Dog Scouts of America, a national 501(c)3 non-profit - you can walk or run on your own time and you will receive a metal for supporting this great cause!  

Run or walk a 5K, 10K or 1 Miler and be rewarded with the Dog Scouts of America 2016 Sparky's Turkey Trot race metal.

Register your K9 partner to walk or run with you. Registering your K9 partner(s) is free.

All proceeds from this race will go to furthering the mission of Dog Scouts of America.

To earn your medal, please run anytime during the week of Thanksgiving (November 20-27) and you will receive a medal "on your honor" for supporting Dog Scouts and getting some miles in.  Medals will be mailed out after the race.

During the setup of this race, we had to choose a location for the race to be based. The home base is the location of Michigan Dog Scout Camp, the happiest place on earth. But this race can be run from anywhere!

A virtual run is a fundraiser to bring people from all over the world to run together on their own time, in their own towns during the week of Thanksgiving.  You can run after work, on the weekend, at your park or on your treadmill. You can also walk!
