Orange City Turkey Trot’s purpose is to mark the Thanksgiving Holiday with joyful community through a 5K fun run / walk.

While we offer a true 5K course and keep runner times, the emphasis is on a fun experience for all ages that will raise awareness and resources for mission.  The 2017 missions are Bethany Christian Services of Orange City and Trinity Youth Missions.

Bethany Christian Services has been reaching out to children who are alone or vulnerable since 1944 as a worldwide and community leader in adoption and family services.

New this year is the partnering with local businesses as sponsors in the hopes to raise more funds for our mission partners.

The 2015 mission partner was ATLAS of Orange City. The race was cancelled the morning of due to ice, but nearly $1000 was raised that year.

In 2014, the Bride was the mission partner with 119 participants and over $1,500 was raised!

The 2013 focus was the Orange City Food Pantry.  Thanks to the 168 participants, $2,000 was raised to alleviate hunger in our community.
