The Chatham Turkey Trot is committed to raising funds to support our first responders and diabetes research and education including: the Chatham Township Volunteer Fire Department (www.ctfd.org/); the Diabetes Research Institute (www.diabetesresearch.org/); the Chatham Emergency Squad (www.chathamemergencysquad.org), and The Barton Center for Diabetes Education (www.bartoncenter.org) -- organizations dedicated to protecting and improving the lives of others.

Our strategy is to create a hallmark holiday tradition in Chatham that brings family, friends, and neighbors together each Thanksgiving that they will want to attend each year to support our first responders and diabetes research and education.

Each year we market the race to the local community through signs, banners, online advertising, mail/flyers to ensure increased awareness of the event and our activities. We are also active on social media: https://www.facebook.com/thechathamturkeytrot

If participants come back each year, we have funds to distribute, and everyone has a great time.

We've have been able to increase attendance and funds raised each year. Regardless of attendance, we hope to continue to develop an event that brings the community together to raise important and much needed funds to support our first responders and diabetes research and education including: the Chatham Township Volunteer Fire Department (www.ctfd.org/); the Diabetes Research Institute (www.diabetesresearch.org/); the Chatham Emergency Squad (www.chathamemergencysquad.org), and The Barton Center for Diabetes Education (www.bartoncenter.org) -- organizations dedicated to protecting and improving the lives of others.
