Start your Thanksgiving Day with a Turkey Trot to benefit Danny Did!

DETAILS: For the 8th year, the Danny Did Foundation is excited to be a co-charity beneficiary of the St. Mary of the Woods (SMOW) parish Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot 5K walk/run.

Anyone who can “catch” a wild turkey (aka Dad's who are wearing turkey costumes) and take a picture with them will be entered into a raffle for some great swag! This is a family friendly event and strollers and walkers are welcome. The 3.1 mile course winds through the neighborhood of Wildwood on the northwest side of Chicago.

Event questions about the event can be directed to race director Billy Litgen at

REGISTRATION: Online here for $20 per person or $40 per family. 

START TIME: 10:30 am.

We are proud to partner with the Henry Schueler 41 & 9 Foundation as a co-charity partner, to support their important work to advance research to conquer the medical challenges of pediatric leukemia. 

Proceeds will benefit the Danny Did Foundation, the 41 & 9 Foundation and St. Mary of the Woods families in need. We hope you can take part!
