MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. (November 20, 2017) – On Thursday, November 23, the Wallkill East Rotary Club will host its 5th annual Turkey Trot 5K race. The course will start and finish at the Galleria at Crystal Run, located at 1 Galleria Drive in Middletown, N.Y. This year’s race will start at 8:00 a.m., with registration beginning at 6:45 a.m. inside the AMC Crystal Run mall entrance. Race proceeds will benefit the Wallkill East Rotary and the local causes supported by the organization.
Turkey Trot races are traditionally held on the morning of Thanksgiving as a fun way to burn off calories before indulging in a Thanksgiving feast. Participants are encouraged to wear turkey hats or costumes. Runners and walkers are welcome, and the race will take place rain or shine.
“Participating in the annual Turkey Trot race is a great way to support local causes while engaging in a healthy activity and having fun,” said Wallkill East Rotary President, Amy Minutolo. “We look forward to race day and would like to thank all those who have contributed to making this event a success.”
This is Minutolo’s first year as President of the Wallkill East Rotary. A long-time member of the organization, Minutolo is employed locally at Walden Savings Bank as an Area Retail Manager.
