The YMCA Dallas Turkey Trot 2020

2020 Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot

The DARC has supported communication for the YMCA Turkey Trot for years. As we discussed during the DARC General Meeting on October 06, 2020, we were still waiting on an official response from the Y as to whether they would be able to hold the event live or have to do all virtual.

I did communicate with our contact at the Y and Friday they made the following announcement:

The YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas announced October 7th, the 2020 Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot will be a virtual event, for the health and safety of participants. Families will be able to participate in this Thanksgiving Day tradition from their neighborhood or wherever they may be across the country on Thanksgiving Day.

The DARC looks forward to helping with the event in 2021.

Stay Safe,

Randy Patterson KE5JIT, PSO
