Christ Church of Arlington organizes and oversees the Arlington Turkey Trot held every Thanksgiving Day since 2006. Voted “Best Local Race/Charity Run” in 2014 according to Arlington Magazine, the Trot has grown into a beloved Arlington tradition and a wonderful opportunity to serve our community. We are awed at the generosity of runners, donors, sponsors, volunteers, media, and county officials that makes the Trot a tremendous example of “giving thanks for all we have and all we have to give.”
The money we raise benefits the Arlington Food Assistance Center, A-SPAN, Arlington Thrive, Bridges to Independence and Doorways for Women and Families. These charities provide housing, food, medical care, emergency assistance, and job opportunities, together with hope and inspiration, for thousands of Arlingtonians in need.
