The 2nd annual Thanksgiving day Turkey trot will be November 26th at 8am at Spring Lake Park in Texarkana.

Community Healthcore is a non-profit agency that is the local Mental Health Authority for 9 counties, including Bowie, Cass and Red River Counties.  Community Healthcore provides Mental Health services to children and adults, Programs for Individuals with Developmental Disabilities, Substance Abuse Services and has a unit to assist homeless Veterans.  We are celebrating the anniversary and the success of the Regional Crisis Response Center, which opened last year, located inside CHRISTUS St. Michael in Atlanta.

The Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot is a great way to kick off the holiday with an annual family tradition.  This year includes a 5K and 1 mile walk.  Strollers and pets entries are encouraged.  Costume contest, turkey call contest and kids sprints and bounce play areas.  Besides local entries they have had entries from numerous states.  Entry fee is $25.00 for 5K or 1 mile, $10.00 for strollers and/or pets.  All other events are free.

Come on out and celebrate Texarkana’s original Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot.
