16th annual Shippan Turkey Trot to end homelessness

Tomorrow morning, before the turkey is carved and Black Friday madness begins, hundreds will gather to run for one purpose: ending homelessness. The 16th annual Shippan Turkey Trot is a community tradition, where runners don costumes to add to the fun, each one doing their part to raise funds for Pacific House emergency shelter.

“We can’t thank this organization enough. Each year they take time out of their holiday, giving back those less fortunate in our community,” said Andrew Barer, Director of Development at Pacific House. “The participants truly understand the meaning of Thanksgiving.”

Those wishing to participate should register online by visiting www.shippantrot.com where donations can be made.  The trot begins at 10 a.m. and starts at 280 Ocean Drive East, between Shippan and Fairview.  It’s recommended that runners get there early to garner maximum costume appreciation.
