STAFF REPORT

Pathfinder Services will hold the 15th Annual Kids Kampus Turkey Trot 5K Run / 1 Mile Walk on Thanksgiving morning, Nov. 28, at 8 a.m. Registration is now open and all proceeds go to Kids Kampus in support of the children and families served.

“The Turkey Trot has become a Thanksgiving tradition for so many families,” said Pathfinder Services President and CEO John Niederman. “We are so grateful to everyone involved because it really takes the entire community to make this a successful event.”

Money raised through the event provides financial support so all children can benefit from the educational and nurturing environment provided at Kids Kampus.

“We can’t think of a better way to kick off a day of giving thanks than to support this wonderful event,” said Britt Sather, owner of host sponsor McDonald’s of Huntington. “We gather together as a community to help our future generation get a great head start in life.”

Registration for the 15th Annual Kids Kampus Turkey Trot is available online at pathfinderservices.org/. The first 1,100 registrants receive a shirt and cinch bag.

Cost of the event is $20 until Nov. 26 and $25 the day before and the day of the event.

In 2018, there were 1,104 participants and a little more than $30,000 was raised for Pathfinder Kids Kampus.

Pathfinder Kids Kampus is an integrated facility that serves children of all abilities in the same learning space. Kids Kampus offers part-time and full-time traditional childcare to children through age 12 and Early Head Start, which is center-based, home-based, or a combination of the two and is offered at no cost to low-income and foster families in need of childcare. EHS focuses on working with children from birth to age 3 and developing relationships with the parents, including prenatal moms.

In addition to host sponsor, McDonald’s of Huntington, other sponsors include Cardinal Family Medicine, PNC, Parkview Huntington Hospital, Rayco Home Services, Conner Insurance, Indiana Physical Therapy, Huntington County Community Foundation, Culp CPA Group, Edward Jones, Lutheran Health, and Fred and Becky Scheiber.
