RACE FOR COMMUNITY
Eight Years of Giving
Our goals this November remain, as always, our youth’s awareness of health and wellness and of community service. We will continue our partnership of providing support to the Newton Food Pantry and beginning this year, Journey Forward.
The Newton Food Pantry has been doing an amazing job, continuing to put food on our neighbors’ tables. During the pandemic they have seen an unprecedented increase in new clients struggling with food insecurity. The Newton Food Pantry has been serving food and personal care products to close to 1,500 Newton residents. We are standing by our commitment to raise $10,000 for the Newton Food Pantry to support families over the Thanksgiving holiday.
In 2021, we will support Journey Forward. This non-profit has helped Ethan Wang of Newton, and others who have survived a severe spinal cord injury or disability with their intense exercise-based programs.
GetFit Training Program
Turkey Trot Silver Sponsor, GetKristenFit has designed two 8-week training programs to get you ready for your best race:
Level 1- "GKF (Covid) Couch to 5k"
Walk to Run/Run for Fun Program
(3 days per week)
Level 2- "GKF Faster 5k"
Run for Fitness Program
(3 days per week)
The GKF brand is a compilation of comprehensive fitness and wellness programs, an inclusive community, and all the tools necessary for you to build and maintain your strongest and most confident mind and body. Instead of creating a habitat where insecurities can hide, clients find comfort instead of results, and true potential is never reached, Get Kristen Fit truly understands what it takes to get YOU to achieve your fitness goals.
The Newton Turkey Trot is a family event that has drawn more than 1,000 participants each year from our community and beyond. Both the Newton Food Pantry and Journey Forward need your support more than ever. We are staying positive that we can get through this and reach our goals together. We hope you will continue to support our race and your community.
