Turkey Trot Virtual Run/Walk

The Turkey Trot has brought the community together with the goal of raising awareness of living a healthy, active lifestyle and giving to others that are in need during the holiday season. The entry fee is only a small donation of non-perishable food items. The Kinesiology Department has been working closely with the Food Bank of the Rio Grande Valley and all donations are contributed to their organization. Over the past 10 years a total of 12,000 pounds of food has been donated. This event could not be made possible without the support of the STC community, volunteers and all of the trotters.

For more information contact Janice Ponce, Coordinator of Kinesiology Instructional Facilities at (956)872-3839 or by email at jperez1@southtexascollege.edu.
