Father Joe’s Villages 16th Annual Thanksgiving Day 5k
Nov 23 @ 7:30 am

On November 23rd, 2017 join 7,500+ participants and spectators in Balboa Park for the 16th Annual Thanksgiving Day 5K, presented by AimLoan.com! The turkey trot begins at 7:30am! San Diego has the country’s 4th largest homeless population, and also is tied for the lowest vacancy rates in the country. The result is that too many of our neighbors are being pushed to life on the streets. This lifestyle does not allow our neighbors to meet their full potential. Thanksgiving Day 5K is not only the most fun turkey trot in town, it also generates awareness and funds to help support Father Joe’s Villages’ efforts to provide and serve close to 1 Million Meals each year!
