2017 Thanksgiving Day 5K Benefiting Martha's Village & Kitchen

Thursday, November 23, 2017 at 8:00am to 10:30am

El Paseo and San Pablo Ave, Palm Desert, CA

Join thousands of Coachella Valley residents before your big Thanksgiving feast for a run, trot or stroll in the crisp autumn air along Palm Desert’s famed El Paseo shopping district, all in the spirit of a great local cause.  


All proceeds of the 11th Annual Thanksgiving Day 5K go directly to Martha’s Village & Kitchen’s programs and services that help homeless and impoverished residents of Coachella Valley. So gather your co-workers, friends and family for some light-hearted activity that helps your neighbors in need. Children in strollers and dogs on leashes are welcomed and encouraged, as are turkey hats and running tutus.  

Medal presentations will be made to the overall top three fastest runners, as well as to the top three fastest males and females across eighteen different age categories. Post-race activities include Festival Row exhibitor booths, Kids Zone games and face painting, and a beer garden featuring local brew by La Quinta Brewing Co.


Volunteers are needed and sponsor opportunities are available. Visit http://marthasvillage5k.org/ to register or for additional information.
