Turkey trotting for a good cause

By Tracy Fowlkes, CPT
Fitness Coordinator

Gobble gobble everyone! Please join the Riderwood Fitness team for the Annual Turkey Trot on Friday, November 17 to jump start the Thanksgiving holiday.  The Turkey Trot is open to all residents and staff and brings everyone together to socialize and get fit while having fun and giving thanks for our friends and loved ones.  For every 10 walkers that participate, a turkey will be donated to the Maryland Food Bank to help a needy family for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Residents and staff will meet in the lobby of Village Square on Friday, November 17th at 9:30 a.m.  At 10 a.m., the Turkey will lead the walking parade from Village Square to Montgomery Station, continuing to Town Center then to Lakeside Commons, and ending at the Glen at Orchard Point for light refreshments and games.

All mobility levels are welcome and encouraged to participate! Walkers may choose between a long route and a short route. In the event that it rains, the Turkey Trot will be held indoors. Please come out and show your support while having a nice morning autumn trot with the Turkey and helping a needy family for Thanksgiving!

For more information, or to sign up to walk, please contact Tracy Fowlkes at the Lakeside Commons Fitness Center or call
